About Me:
I have been teaching the piano for 16 years. I have had the pleasure of teaching students of all ages, levels of experience and stylistic interests. I have had students who sought training in all areas of piano and keyboard playing, from piano to synthesizer and from sight-reading to improvising and composing.

When I was a young piano student, my teacher was extremely encouraging of my own creative process, and as a teacher I have always worked to incorporate a student's aesthetic inspirations into the methods of formal training. Whether a student is sight-reading, reading and improvising from a chart, or training his or her ear while learning from a recording, there is always a wealth of knowledge to be gained. I accommodate the unique styles and goals of each student to build confidence and explore creativity.
As a professional musician, I have recorded with several bands, classical ensembles and jazz groups, and I have toured the US and Europe extensively.

Ages:
Elementary School, Pre-teen, Teenage, Adult
