Teaches students:

Teaching since:
2003

Music, and piano playing, has been a lifelong passion for me. I've been playing piano since I was 5 years old, and I've been teaching piano for over a decade, in 3 different countries to children and adults of all ages and abilities. I have taught privately, at music schools and at prestigious conservatories, including Juilliard.

I hold a Bachelor's degree in Piano from Canada, a Master's Degree from the Guildhall School in London, UK, and a Doctoral Degree from the Juilliard School. I currently teach university students at SUNY Binghamton in upstate NY.

Since I am classically trained, classical music is my specialty, but I can teach jazz and contemporary repertoire as well. You will be hard pressed to find a more experienced and highly-trained pianist!

Music and learning music should be an enjoyable and rewarding experience, and it's my mission to make sure this happens in my studio. I want to pass on the joy music has given me!

I am able to teach in my own studio, or travel to your home provided it is reasonable distance. Looking forward to hearing from you!
