“My goal as an instructor is to instill a deep appreciation in my students for music of all genres. It is always my hope that as students become increasingly proficient at the piano, the struggle and discipline of learning and mastery gradually give way to the joy and pleasure that comes from the ability to express oneself artistically, technically and creatively.
Although my own experiences have been focused on classical training and technique, I understand that success in music appreciation is an individual experience that needs to be tailored to each student. Through collaboration with musicians of jazz, pop, honky-tonk, and blues backgrounds, I have deepened my understanding of genres beyond classical. I have always thrived on discovering new and exciting ways for students to reach their full potential and to enjoy their journey.”
