Music education is my passion. Currently a certified New York State N-12 music teacher, teaching instrumental music in a school district on Long Island. I have been playing piano since I was 5 years old and performed a pair of recitals at Carnegie Hall and other fine performance halls. In addition to the piano I play multiple instruments and teach several such as the cello, violin, trumpet, clarinet and saxophone. Learning to play an instrument and make music can be challenging but it is wonderful experience! I look forward in teaching you.
