I've trained extensively in classical piano for several yrs., and play in a multitude of styles particularly Jazz, Gospel, and RnB. I've been a teaching artist for several after school music programs; most recently being "The Harmony Project" (3 yrs.) and “Success Through the Arts Foundation" (2yrs). Aside from this I've performed for a variety of venues, bands, vocalists, and more currently church choirs. I teach Music Theory, Sight Reading, Ear Training, and give them the tools to develop Technical proficiency on their instrument so they may become self-sufficient.
