I began my classical training in both piano and harp at a young age. As I progressed, I began studying piano, music theory, music history, and collaborative piano at the Pennsylvania Academy of Music for five years. I then earned my Bachelor's Degree in Piano Performance with a Harp Minor at Houghton College, New York. I taught both instruments during those four years while continuing accompaniment work. Following schooling, I moved to North Carolina where I taught over 60 students ages 4-65 at Cary School of Music for over two years.
While most of my training is in the Classical field, I have a strong passion for contemporary music as well. I believe that both piano and harp have the ability to reach many different audiences. As a teacher, I believe in giving my students a strong Classical foundation while using the technique and theory to delve into other styles of music such as jazz and contemporary pop. With this instruction, each student will be able to find what music inspires them while having the skills to further that style.
For over two years, I worked at a private school of music where I had over sixty students with ages ranging from 4-65.
