My teaching style is gentle, supportive, and creative. I strive to encourage and inspire my students’ artistic expression and confidence while nurturing their love of music. While I specialize in teaching adults – both new to the piano or returning to the instrument with renewed interest and enthusiasm – my students range in age between 16 and 88, and I welcome all ages and teach all styles. I offer weekly lessons and am pleased to work with students at any level of experience. I incorporate duet work, sight reading, technique, rhythmical development, theory, and chord work in my lessons, depending on the needs and interests of each individual.
