All students ages 6 and above are welcome! The goals of the student are important in guiding the lessons, whether you want to learn a new skill, have fun, play a piece for a friend, or make it your career. All students work at a comfortable pace in a relxed environment.
Students receive a well-rounded balance of note reading, rhythm, music theory, musical styles, and technique. Playing musically is an important component at all levels.
Students are given help in how to organize and maximize their practice time to gain the most benefits. They have specific goals for practice, which promotes progress and reduces the uncertainty about what to do between lessons. Students are encouraged to come to lessons with specific questions and feedback on difficulties. The goal is to develop students who can manage their practice and work efficiently for their desired results.
The Taubman Approach is the basis of my teaching. The fundamental principle is to use the body with the correct motions to allow ease of playing and artistic expression. The Taubman Approach offers specific solutions to technical problems and difficulties.

I've been teaching private piano lessons for over 20 years, and previously taught music in the public schools for 12 years.
I enjoy helping students realize their potential, and find joy in their music. It's exciting to watch their growth.
