Teaches students:
Ages 3+ and special needs

Teaching since:

Welcome! I am a performing pianist, accompanist, singer, and multi-instrumentalist. I have been teaching for over 25 years, in schools and privately. I emphasize learning enjoyment and convenience, with lessons at your location or at the studio.

You will use top tier programs, and technology as appropriate, to learn quickly and with good techique.

Voice students can expect to improve week to week in your vocal technique. Every voice has a unique sound; we will work to unlock your own individual style and sound, using music you enjoy. You can sing with freedom, confidence, and expression.

I teach piano students of all different ages and experience levels. I am classically trained, but perform many styles of music. For students age 7+, your accelerated piano program includes a proprietary software to help you progress at amazing speed, so you can play the music you love, with technical skill and artistry. No more wondering what to do next!

Young students (age 3-5) use a story based curriculum just for young beginners, with fun characters and success. Adult learners and players who want to refresh your skills love our group recreational music program. It's a relaxed environment to play and improve your foundation.

As a multi-instrumentalist, I encourage students to explore a second or third instrument or voice training. I love to mentor students who want to develop their talents. I teach several instruments.

My passion is teaching music. Everyone can learn, given the right tools. I firmly believe that great technique and performances are possible with just a few minutes of practice a day.

I look forward to helping you add to your natural abilities in an enjoyable, convenient learning environment. Let's get started!
