I strive to create accomplished, independent musicians by giving them exposure to contemporary, classical, jazz/blues, and other genres as they want. The materials I use will give you easy ways to keep improving your skills between your lessons. I want everyone to make music a lifelong companion. Learning piano can boost a sense of achievement and confidence not duplicated in other pursuits. It can improve social skills and academic abilities, and it provides a creative outlet that will stay with you throughout your life. I've been teaching for over 15 years and have a Bachelor's degree in Music Education, Theater Arts with additional graduate study in Music Education.
