I have been studying piano almost all my life. I have a Master of Music from New England Conservatory and a L.G.S.M. Certificate in Piano Pedagogy from the Guildhall School of Music in London and have performed in solo and duo piano concerts in venues including the Weill (Carnegie) Hall in NYC, Jordan Hall in Boston, Stanford University, Philadelphia Art Alliance, and many more.

My Music

In 2012 I recorded one piano piece every week for the year and uploaded it to Soundcloud. These raw, unedited files, recorded in my living room are just some of my favorite pieces — from Scarlatti and Bach to Janacek and Rachmaninoff — with a sprinkling of modern music. I believe the more music students learn, the quicker they progress and improve their reading skills. I challenge my students to sightread, improvise, perform and participate in music making activities with their peers. You can listen to my music here:

My Writing

Along with a mini-book for Kindle “Practice Hacks for Piano: A Guide for the Busy Pianist” I’ve also written a screenplay, “Playing With Beethoven.” Please follow along at as we go from pre-production to production.
