2001

I’ve been teaching piano for the last 18 years, and I’ve been playing for over 30 years! This isn’t a hobby or something I do on the side, this is my career, my profession, and my passion. I have worked with young children, teenagers, and adults all the way up to senior citizens. My comprehensive background helps me to be effective at helping a variety of people learn music through the piano. I love helping people develop their musical skills in order to enhance their lives. It doesn’t matter if you’re brand new to piano or have played for years, I can help you on your journey with music.

I have Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in piano and I’m a Nationally Certified Teacher of Music in piano through MTNA (Music Teachers National Association). In addition, I have training and experience in Dalcroze Eurhythmics, Recreational Music Making, Improvisation, and Jazz. I have had articles published in American Music Teacher, given presentations at local, state, and national music teachers conferences, have been on numerous committees, and I have been a judge for contests, competitions, festivals, and for the Royal Conservatory of Music Examinations based out of Toronto Canada.
