About this pro

I have known since  college that I wanted to be a piano teacher. I love teaching and working with students of all ages and abilities. I feel that if I can help someone achieve success in music, it will help then succeed in other areas of life as well. And I define “achieving success” as  getting a student to the point where they feel musically fulfilled. For some, this simply means playing their favorite song with both hands. For others, it means performing at a professional level. And for most, it’s somewhere in between.
I received my Bachelor and Master of Music degrees from the Juilliard School and Mannes College of Music of Music.
Music is meant to satisfy the soul, and I hope that every student experiences that in their lessons with me.
