ABOUT

I enjoy teaching children and adults of all ages and levels. My curriculum includes technique, music theory, ear training, and performance opportunities.  My studio set up includes an acoustic Yamaha Studio Upright, a Casio Privia Digital Piano, and computer.  Additional enrichment activities are provided using technology for composition, recording, and theory instruction.   Although classical music is my specialty, students are exposed to many styles of music. I believe music should be a joyful experience, therefore my curriculum is adapted to fit each student’s learning style and musical interest.
