About this pro stands out because we focus on bringing FUN back into music. How do I do this?  I do this by making music easy and fun again. I pride myself on helping students really understand what they are doing. Not just showing them a few notes on the piano. Anyone can show you how to copy what someone else is playing at the piano. I make sure you understand music and learn how to create music at a deep level.

Music is my passion and being able to be immersed in music day in and day out is a real dream come true! Then to be able to watch others find that love and passion for themselves in music is even so much more rewarding.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

Typically we talk over the phone and I will get a clear picture of where the student's goals are at musically. Then before we meet I plan a first lesson that hits on their goals. If the student is unsure about their goals I plan a broad overview of music and then delve into helping them build up their weak points. I always seek to make the lesson upbeat and fun.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I hold a B.S. in Music emphasizing in Piano Performance from Southern Adventist University one of the nations few all Steinway schools. I have taught privately for 4 years and built a studio of 33 successful students in Nashville, TN in just a matter of months. I have recently relocated to Chattanooga, TN.

How did you get started teaching?

As a musician,​ this is such a rewarding career to watch my student's faces light up with the joy of music!

What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with students as young as 4 years old all the way up to a wonderful lady in her 70s! I have a broad range of experience teaching many different types of students.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

This year (2018) to stay fresh and keep my skills at a pristine level for my students I have set a goal of performing 100 concerts this year. As of the end of May, I will be well on the way to completing this goal by having 50 of those concerts completed!

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

- Try to define for yourself first why you want to study music, what does success look like? (BUT don't worry if you can't define that, I am always happy to talk that out with potential students and help them define what success looks like for them individually) -

- Know what you want to get out of lessons. That will really help you be happy with your lessons and it will also help the instructor know how to properly plan for your lessons.

- See if the instructor offers a FREE trial lesson. It's not only important that your instructor be qualified musically but you also want to make sure that you and your instructor click well and that their teaching style can match with your learning style.

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

- Why do I want to study music/piano?

- What are my goals for piano lessons/what is success look like for my lessons?

- Do I prefer to have my lessons in person or am I ok with having a virtual lesson?

- How much time and consistency am I honestly able to commit to this?
