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 ...
