I come to piano teaching through my love of all sorts of music. First, my students (ages 6-adult) gain a foundation in classical technique and repertoire. Students can try other styles if inclined. As a graduate of two music conservatories and also a parent, I am enthusiastic that we can create a superior learning environment. Lessons are at a grand piano in a South Amherst farmhouse.
“[My son] leaves every lesson beaming. Your lessons make him so happy.” -Jacqueline Strauss, parent
I have a Bachelor of Music (B.Mus.) from Oberlin Conservatory, and a Master’s of Music (M.M. with Hon.) from New England Conservatory of Music. Since 1995 I have taught music to every level and every age group. I also teach Theory/Composition and Percussion privately.
