About this pro

I have a Doctoral Degree in piano performance.  My students excel in competitive and non-competitive events.  I teach students of all levels and ages.  They make progress very quickly - and, they have fun!  I am qualified to help you set up a great foundation from the very beginning, so you don't spend years fixing bad habits!  Let me help you with a great foundation. 

I love seeing my students excel!  They are excited about the practice suggestions they learn with me, and I see a lot of progress because of these suggestions.  This is very rewarding.  After just a few short months, my students play confidently, with dynamics, articulation, and musicianship.
