As a lifetime musician — beginning with piano at age 4 — I have had the privilege of playing, singing, teaching, soloing, accompanying, publicizing, composing, arranging and directing in a wide variety of settings. My studies at Oberlin and Northwestern and these experiences combine to help me craft the best approach for YOU — to learn more about music in general and your specific area(s) of interest. Let’s work TOGETHER to move you forward in your musical journey!
Music is my first language, and I love helping others to learn it (better), as well. Studying music — and creativity in general — adds so much to the enjoyment in and enrichment of one’s life, I just can’t get enough of teaching, performing, and writing new pieces. My training in piano began with my father, moved on to both classical and jazz instructors during high school, and continued in classical during college. Regularly singing in choruses, I also studied voice and accompanied lessons extensively during those years, also. Most recently, my voice education continued under an awesome director of a men’s barbershop chorus back in New York. I still compose, I’m currently helping on two musicals in development, and I perform regularly as a singing pianist.

First, we will assess together what you (the student) already know about the study area that interests you, as well as what your goals are: what style(s) interest you, what level of competency you hope to achieve, what feeds your creativity. Then, we work out a clear understanding between us about how we’ll best achieve your goals. With younger students, this is done along with a parent(s) in order that it is realistic and not intimidating. Listening and responding to you is of utmost importance because I want students (and parents) to always feel like we’re in this together.
