I have been a successful performer, composer, arranger and studio musician living and working in New York City for the last 30 years. I have been honored to have had many private students, some of whom have gone on to professional careers. I enjoy teaching students of all ages and levels and I do so with a specialized, personal approach. No two students are the same and no two students should be taught with identical plans. Above all my philosophy is that we "play" music. If you're not having fun, you're not playing the piano.
