Teaching since:

From a very young age I have been exposed to music. Born and raised in Germany, my training in piano began first classically, then later transitioned to Jazz. This eventually lead me to move stateside to further my education and experience.
Everyone's learning speed varies, and our lessons will accommodate this - individually created lesson plans tailored specifically to you or your child allow us to get the most out of each lesson, and the practice time in between!
