I'm a professional piano and voice teacher. I live in Charlotte, North Carolina, with my husband and two children. I've taught hundreds of students over the past ten years. I LOVE working with beginners who are just starting their musical journey.

I studied opera at Florida International University, and have performed at various venues in Florida and North Carolina.

I currently teach music part-time at a local private school. I also teach private in-home lessons through my company "Melody Studios."

I love the fact that Leah teaches the theory and the basics at the same time she allows and shows my daughter how to actually play music and see she is evolving. It keeps her motivated!
