Where are Lessons Offered
In My Studio
I welcome students of all ages and abilities, from beginner to advanced. My goal is to instill in every student a love and appreciation of music and piano, and to provide them with the knowledge and tools necessary to play and enjoy this incredible instrument, whether as a life-long hobby or as a career.
Students are taught in a relaxed environment on a Steinway grand piano, and are strongly encouraged to perform and share their talents with others. Performance opportunities include my annual winter and spring studio recitals, festivals at local colleges, National Guild piano auditions, performing at local venues such as nursing homes and businesses, and pairing up with other students for duets and ensembles.
