As an educator, I am very interested in helping a student understand that practice and learning is a fun and life-long experience at any age. The importance of creativity and using your imagination, while playing on and off the music stand, is very evident in my private teaching style. I only wish that my students become receptive to the idea that if one wants to learn how to play music, they must find the balance between the technical aspect of it and what ignites your heart and soul. I have a Bachelor's in Music Performance from Berklee College of Music and an extensive private teaching client base through Corner Music in Old Saybrook, Forbes Music Company LLC, and through my own private teaching. I am also a certified Yoga Instructor and often combine the body and breath connection to music through stretching and movement.
