I have been teaching piano at my studio in Vallejo since 1990 (and before that in San Francisco). I hold Bachelor's and Master's degrees in piano performance from San Francisco State University, and am president of the Solano County branch of the Music Teachers' Association of California. I have extensive experience as piano soloist and accompanist, as church organist, and in musical theater. I offer a comprehensive program of piano technique and repertoire, ear training and music theory. While my approach is essentially classical, my aim is to develop independent musicians who have a command of the instrument and an understanding of how music works, so that they can take up any style that interests them or develop their own style.
