I hold a Bachelor's degree in music and have been a working musician for more than 25 years. While considering each student as an individual I strive to find the best course of instruction, be it reading or ear focused learning, though proficiency at both of these areas is important. I have improved my musicianship through both methods but have experienced the greatest joy of musical discovery through ear training. I feel this can be a springboard to a better understanding of music fundamentals for those who may not desire an initial reading approach. I can provide a comfortable learning atmosphere in my home, on an upright style electric piano with standard keyboard action, or would consider going to the student's home if within a reasonable distance. I am open to teaching most popular styles, including beginning to intermediate classical, rock, blues, pop, and some jazz fundamentals.

I try to determine the best approach based on the student's experience level and discuss the options of reading and hearing based methods of teaching.Ideally I try to incorporate some of both of these approaches as well as some music fundamentals.
