I look forward to hearing from you! 🎶🎹

I really enjoy watching & hearing each student grow musically - To remind a student of where they started & have them see just how far they’ve come. I enjoy the analytical side of discovering what the music is saying - what is the mood of each piece? What story is the music trying to tell us when we play? The more we understand who the composer was, what the story of each piece is - the more we can connect to the music & make it come to life off of the page. That’s my favorite part - seeing the student connect with the piece & causing the listener to feel what they feel. That moment of goosebumps from beautifully played piano music - those are the best moments. I don’t expect my students to love piano as much as I do, or become a concert pianist or anything close - I do hope that I inspire a love & personal enjoyment for music & playing piano with each of my students.

    Frequently asked questions

    I like to find out what their goals are with studying piano & combine both my expertise & their music preferences to help motivate them so they can have a positive musical experience. 

    Besides taking formal piano lessons for 18 years I also have my degree in music in piano performance from Webster University
    I started teaching private piano when I was 19 as a substitute teacher for my former piano teacher when she was on vacation. I knew instantly teaching piano was what I wanted to do for a living.
