"Music is a gift of joy. It is the sound of beauty understood in every language."
My goal is to teach students of all ages an appreciation and understanding of music, and to express themselves creatively through music. My teaching method varies with each students interests, age, abilities, and personality. I love music and desire to share the joy of music making with my students as well.
I believe music education to be an important part of an overall education. The extended successes of a quality music education includes success in academics, society, development of intelligence, analytical thinking, and creativity, and successes in life. Extended benefits of a quality music education include teaching life skills such as patience, poise, determination, dedication, tenacity, hard work, and teamwork.
My experience includes:
12 years of piano teaching to students of all ages and all levels.
Ability to teach and personalize musical instruction for each student.
Complete music studio and resources available.

Several group performances with other professional musicians.
Experience as a recording artist/producer.
