I'm a highly qualified and professional piano teacher with a degree in Piano Performance from SDSU and a roster of close to 30 students. I've been teaching for close to 6 years and am happy to be able to host annual recitals, masterclasses, chamber music events, and so on.
Despite my professional playing ability, I pride myself in being extremely personable, fun, and funny to be around! I'm a young teacher (at a modest 24 years old), which lets me really connect with my students. It would be an understatement to say that my many students love their lessons with me!
