Since I began teaching in 2004, I've enjoyed teaching students ranging from adult piano teachers and hobbyists to pre-professional musicians and children learning for fun. My students have performed in recitals, won auditions at the National Piano Guild, and participated in the Interlochen summer festival, among many other events!
We will tailor lessons to suit your goals.
As a pianist, I've performed across the country as a soloist and a collaborator, including recitals with faculty members of the Peabody Conservatory and the National Symphony Orchestra.
I'm constantly seeking to further my education and improve my skills through ongoing private lessons in piano, organ, voice, conducting, and composition, as well as through masterclasses, workshops, courses, and texts.
