My approach to teaching is to tailor lessons to each student’s goals and needs. I am a patient and enthusiastic teacher. I incorporate theory, technique, and musicianship into lessons. As a certified instructor in the Taubman technique, I find it to be a natural approach to piano playing that promotes artistry and fluidity at the piano, as well as a help to overcoming limitations. The approach can help heal and prevent repetitive motion injuries. I enjoy teaching students of all ages and levels.

I received a BA in Music from Brown University , and Master’s Degree in Piano Performance and the Creative Arts in Education from the Longy School of Music and Lesley College . I have studied the Taubman approach with Mary Moran and Edna Golandsky since 1992. I am a certified Associate and an Adjunct Faculty member of the Golandsky Piano Institute. I have been teaching and performing solo and chamber music in the New England/ New York region since 1978. I have 4 self-produced CD’s featuring my performances of solo and four-hand piano music. In addition to maintaining my private studio, I teach piano at Northampton Community Music Center. I have taught at Greenfield Community College, Eaglebrook School, Art Space and the Academy at Charlemont.
