Teaching has been a passion of mine long before it was my profession. I inherited a love of pedagogy from the many wonderful and gifted mentors I've worked with throughout my career, and consider it a great honor to pass along this knowledge to subsequent generations.

Whether you're a beginner desiring to learn recreationally, or a serious pianist seeking to hone your technical and artistic skills, I'm interested in hearing from you. I draw upon a wealth of methods and resources to craft an individualized course of instruction specifically tailored to meet each student's musical goals. In addition to private instruction, I have extensive experience as a classroom instructor in ear training, group piano, and keyboard skills, and as a clinician for master classes and festivals. I also specialize in audition coaching and competition preparation for advanced players.


To inquire about lessons, or to schedule a master class, lecture-presentation, adjudication, or festival appearance, please contact me directly through the Contact Page.
