The pipe organ is such a magnificent an diverse instrument. I have been playing it almost as long as I have been playing the piano (10 years.) I love all the possibilities the instrument holds and its rich history. The literature written for the organ is some of the most beautiful music composed. It is a complex art form that I would love to teach you!

Teaching since:

I have been playing the piano for 11 years. I started when I was 6 and have been taking private lessons ever since. I received classical training, but I enjoy all types of music. I can also play the organ, french horn, trumpet, guitar, and banjo. I have been teaching local students for almost 5 years and love getting to share my passion for music with others. Along with teaching piano, I am employed as a church musician.

Usually, I teach the James Bastien Piano for the Young Beginner to children and Bastien Piano for Adults to teenagers and adults. I have had a handful of students that preferred to learn by ear and I do not mind teaching that way either. I never use a "one size fits all" approach. Instead, I try to structure the lesson and the curriculum around the individual student.
