The art of teaching is working to empower you with the skills needed to ENJOY and PLAY the piano music you love and/or want to create, and I can help you get there!
I am an experienced, patient teacher with a Massachusetts DESE (public school) certification, a BA in Music, Piano Performance and Music Education, as well as an active composer and performer, offering piano, theory, ear training, arranging and composition lessons for all ages/levels! I have taught ages 4 to older adult. If you have never studied music or piano, or if you had lessons in the past and want to re-start — tell me your goals and I’ll create a plan to help you achieve them — at ANY age!
As an experienced teacher and a life-long musician and performer, my approach is to foster the joy of music through a strong foundation of basic music skills (notation/music reading, rhythm, overall musicality, theory, ear training, composition and improvisation). My approach will also help you access and enhance your own creativity, and I have been successful in nurturing natural aptitude and interest.
Teaching and music are my passion, and I truly enjoy working with students of all ages, abilities and interests, to attain their goals, whatever they may be.
