Teaching since:
2010

I have been teaching the piano since 2010 after graduating from the University of Maryland with a Bachelor of Science degree in engineering. My goal as a teacher is to provide students with the tools they need to succeed in their own musical journey, whether they pursue the piano for the rest of their lives, switch to other instruments, or decide to pursue other interests.

I started studying the piano when I was four and began participating in piano competitions in the 5th grade. When I was in 8th grade, I won first place in a concerto competition and was able perform my piece before a live audience, while accompanied by an orchestra. That opportunity helped me realize that I love sharing music with others, be they students, fellow musicians, or members of an audience. Throughout the years, I have pursued this love by playing the piano for/with friends and family, singing in choirs, and playing the violin in orchestras and ensembles. While attending the University of Maryland, I was a member of the Gamer Symphony Orchestra, where I sung with the choir and led the soprano and alto sections in rehearsal. Today, I also work as a piano accompanist and church musician, where I sing with the choir and play the violin, in addition to playing the piano.
