About this pro

I have made it my personal mission to innovate and put creativity, exploration, humor, and fun into my students’ piano lessons.

My students:

    • Learn sight reading and steady rhythm from day one so that they are prepared for playing all types of music
    • Review and retain all their lessons through the use of games and writing their own music (even my beginners!)
    • Get all the benefits that science has shown piano instruction provides including increased academic performance, higher IQs, etc.  And to top it off, this is all done in an encouraging and positive environment
    • Move through their beginner books faster than the “average” time the publisher recommends, which is about 16 weeks per book
    • Learn all of their music during their weekly piano classes so they feel energized instead of lost and confused when they get home

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

Most kids view piano lessons as “just more homework,” and another task to “check off the list” along with extracurricular activities, homework, MORE homework, chores, and family obligations.

Why!?!? What went wrong?!?!

Sadly, most piano classes focus on FACTS and very little on creativity, music appreciation, or enjoyment.

It’s amazing what can be accomplished when you tap into a child’s natural curiosity and sense of exploration. By encouraging children to have fun and to relax at the piano, I remove the common roadblocks that prevent them from reaching their full potential.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I began playing at four years old and studied under several teachers in the Indianapolis area. I chose to study music at the collegiate level at a private school in Florida where I studied piano from 2000- 2004. I received my bachelor of science in music education from Pensacola Christian College in 2004.

While at Pensacola Christian College, I had the privilege and opportunity to study under Daniel Nagy and Daisy de Luca Jaffe who are both renowned concert pianists. They have toured the world playing at venues throughout Europe, North America, and South America.
