Teaching Philosophy

I see learning of music akin to learning a spoken language. In my youth, I benefited tremendously from the methods of my first teacher and I incorporate these methods in my own teaching. I believe in developing the inner ear in a musician and I use a synthesis of different approaches to make sure that I reach the student, no matter their learning style.


During the past 15 years:
-individual piano and theory lessons to all age groups
-performance workshops to school-aged and college students promoting the art of improvisation
-Teaching assistant in Music Theory at the University of Minnesota

Director of Music Research at Zenph (2005-2012)
Artistic Associate with Zeitgeist, the new music group (2001-2005)

Freelance soloist, chamber musician and improviser.


-DMA in Piano Performance from the University of Minnesota
