TEACHING THE TOOLS FOR EXPRESSION THE PIANO: My goal is to share my love of music as an art form and another language. It is often the best and healthiest way to communicate & express emotions. Piano students need all the right tools in order to easily and comfortably express themselves through the piano. I have developed a special teaching method that balances all of these tools in my teaching: technique, musicianship, listening skills, music reading, theory, and history. With all of these skills and knowledge, students can perform their repertoire with ease.

DEDICATION TO STUDENTS AND TEACHING: When I take on a student, I am completely dedicated to giving each student the best musical education I know how. This is what my teachers did and I love having the opportunity to "give back"! To me, teaching is not simply teaching one or two lessons a week, it is a commitment. My students become a part of my life and I love keeping in touch with them throughout their future.

LEARN CORRECTLY FROM THE BEGINNING: From the very first lesson, students need to develop correct habits in terms of reading, technique, and listening skills.

MY STUDENTS: I welcome the opportunity to work with students from beginner children, intermediate students, and adult professionals. I have taught the highest level students and helped them receive scholarships to study at conservatories and festivals and I have also taught beginners as young as 4 years old.
