I am a female Piano Player/ Composer/ Producer. Originally from Australia and have been based in NYC for four years. I have degree in Jazz Piano Performance from Australia's premiere music school. I have always enjoyed teaching people of all ages and backgrounds as it is very rewarding to share knowledge and inspire people to explore their creativity through music. I have been a performer for the past 15 years in most contemporary music styles, Jazz, blues, Top 40, World music with performances in Japan, China, Portugal, Thailand, Colombia as well as Australia. I have had a particular focus in Latin music styles over past 10 years and regularly perform this music around NYC. I also love to produce and compose music and collaborate with artists and am currently producing EP's for two new artists in Pop and RnB styles. I have experience teaching private students, groups and within schools and I really look forward hearing from you! I have recently re-;located to St Petersburg Florida

I am enjoying every single lesson with Vashti. She took the time to get to know the music I wanted to learn and we started developing it. I already have recommended her to my family and friends because she is someone who has a vast knowledge of music, and a great communicator

Vashti was excellent. She immediately put my son at ease on his first lesson & kept him focused. She was able to address areas of weakness in a positive manner leaving my son happy to continue with more lessons. We are looking forward to our second lesson.
