About this pro

I have been teaching music to students of all ages since I graduated with my BA in Music from UCSD in 1990. I own a lovely studio in Encinitas on El Camino Real with rooms dedicated to voice, piano, and drums. I play in two popular local bands and am well versed in pop, rock, and musical theater! 

I love what I do! Watching “the lights go on” is my favorite thing, especially when the student felt baffled at first. I enjoy teaching adults as much as my youngest students and approach each lesson and student individually with the patience, respect, and kindness they deserve.

    I feel the love


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I understand each student is unique and that one cookie cutter approach doesn’t fit all. I take each student on their own individual merits, always compliment their achievements and try to shed light on their trouble spots. I’m a patient and caring teacher who understands the importance of individuality and I tailor my lessons accordingly.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

i have a BA in Music from UCSD and have been teaching every since I graduated from there in 1990. I’ve also studied privately with Martin Grusin and Phil Larson.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

Half hour lessons are $38 and you pay for four lessons at a time. I allow makeups if you cancel within 24 hours. 

How did you get started teaching?

I’ve always been a teacher at heart. When we played “school” as kids I was always the teacher! 

What types of students have you worked with?

I’ve worked with every type of student, young and old, including students with special needs. 

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I really enjoy our “open mic” performances! Three times a year my students get to perform for family and friends. I love watching the proud students and parents beam over their accomplishments!

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Make sure the teacher you choose is a good fit. Some students thrive with a strict teacher; others prefer a more relaxed approach. You won’t know a teachers style until you meet with them!
