Whether you are interested in learning the piano for your own enjoyment, or wish to prepare for performances or competitions, I offer students of any level a complete toolkit for learning and making music on the instrument. The focus is on technique, sigh-reading, and repertoire. I believe in providing a friendly and engaging environment in my lessons, and my educational background includes the Oberlin Conservatory, Juilliard School, the Cleveland Institute of Music, and the Butler School of Music in Austin.

Teaching since:

I am a professional pianist, with an active performance schedule in Canada and the United States. Some of my recent highlights include a performance of my own piano concerto with a chamber orchestra in Cleveland, a solo recital at Texas State University's "Rising Star" series, and a 5-day series of interviews and performances on "Performance Today" with the Minnesota Public Radio.

I have enjoyed teaching since the age of 16, and offer a complete toolkit for students at any level; from beginner to professional. My focus is geared towards building and maintaining a solid technical foundation, sight-reading skills, and learning a diverse repertoire of music that you will enjoy playing for many years.

It is important to prepare for the stage psychologically, and if you are interested in making music in front of a live audience, I also offer practical advice to build confidence and make the experience more enjoyable.

I finished my bachelors of music at the Oberlin Conservatory, my masters at the Juilliard School, an Artist diploma and the Cleveland Institute of Music, and am currently pursuing my Doctoral Studies at the Butler School of Music at UT Austin.
