About this pro

I have a fun, integrated approach to piano studies which incorporates practice, improvisation, reading and theory.  You become a complete musician, not just a reader of other people's music.  This includes learning how to write your own pieces and songs, improvising to existing music, reading everything from classical to jazz and pop.  Discover your own personal style and use it as a stress release, a creative outlet, and perhaps build a successful musical career.  

I have been a teacher for around twenty years, and a professional musician for fifty years.  I am a songwriter and composer of many different types of music, a producer and arranger, vocal accompanist, and I have produced, recorded over fifteen albums of original music.
