My philosophy of teaching piano and music is an integrated, individualistic approach. My responsibility as a teacher is to tap into the enthusiasm of the student - what excites them and captivates them about music and nurture that curiosity. While covering the spectrum of theory, technique, and depth of sounds - it is also important to keep it fresh with innovative approaches to learning different concepts and I achieve this using many different ways honed over the years. 'Practice' has become a loaded word with learning music and I encourage individuals to be self-motivated from their own desire to learn and reap the benefits of what 'practi ... View Profile

I have been teaching piano since 1980, and I can't imagine a more rewarding or enjoyable career. I get to combine my loves of music and children with my fascination with music technology. I believe every child can learn to play music and enjoy doing it. I do not believe in music competition, but I do believe in performing and listening to the performances of others. The studio’s achievement that I value most is that my students keep music in their lives. I don’t want their playing to end with high school graduation. My studio blends traditional, private, classically based instruction with a state-of-the-art music technology lab. As th ... View Profile

I was raised in a musical household, started playing piano at the age of four, and began teaching classical piano when I was 16. Though I have been formally teaching off-and-on since then, I've found it incredibly rewarding and have always been happy to teach any friends or family who showed an interest in learning. I have taken voice lessons from Broadway, Classical, and Gospel instructors and, as a theatre performer, have also studied voice as an actor. Having spent two years as the Soprano section leader for a local choir, I use and teach methods that both strengthen the voice as well as get performers in touch with their natural voice ...
