I care about my students and their progression and adapt to the needs and goals of each student (and if your goal is just to have fun, that's great too!) Lessons typically include technique, repertoire, a method book, music theory, sight reading, ear training, and improvisation. Teaching students to work with their anatomy helps create beautiful sound without tears, frustration, or bordom.

The studio includes a variety of activities each spring and fall semester: group classes, guest masterclasses, festivals for prepared students, and recitals.

Optional 15-minute virtual "check-in" in between lessons each week at no additional cost.

I'm passionate enough about piano to be graduating with a Bachelor's of Music in Piano Performance this fall, and passionate enough about teaching itself to be presenting at the Utah Music Teachers Association conference this fall on educational neuroscientist David A. Sousa's book How the Brain Learns this fall.

I love helping students learn how they best move to play with good technique and breaking down music to make it easier. It's so rewarding to see them progress!

Frequently asked questions

I offer a free consultation or first lesson for new students, both for them to see if they like me as a teacher and for me to evaluate where the student is. Doing this enables us both to start on the same page when lessons begin.

I'm currently working on a Bachelor's in Piano Performance at Utah Valley University, graduating this fall. I've taken classes in music theory, ear training, music history, piano pedagogy, educational psychology, and elementary music methods, all of which have contributed to my teaching.

Everyone! 4-year-olds, reitired folks, and aspiring music majors alike.

I really enjoyed presenting at the past Utah Music Teachers' Association annual state conference this past November. It was so fun to research "how the brain learns," and the audience interaction was great. I learned from them as well!
