About Me

I have been playing classical piano since I was 4, competed and won countless gold medals through the years. I was trained under the well-known Dr. Betti, who at the time was the President of the Beethoven Society. I have been teaching piano for 8 years and have played and composed music for myself for 25 years. I have a love for music myself, and also for sharing that love with others. I would love to talk with you about my teaching strategy and how I share my passion for music. Please feel free to contatct me with any questions. I look forward to hearing from you.

What I Teach

I have a unique studio as I take students as young as the age of 3. This is done in a group setting, which offers music theory, confidence, and a firm foundation of music basics to begin private lessons. I offer piano instruction to all ages and skill levels in a safe, fun, and caring atmosphere. I am constantly researching ways to engage students with music and their environment. I focus strongly on music theory, note reading, correct rhythm development, as well as developing strong musicianship in each student.
