At any level, in any style, for any purpose, playing the music you love is what it's all about. There's enough piano repertoire to occupy a few lifetimes, so finding the music that speaks most intimately or powerfully to you is the first step to performing with conviction and communication. Synthesizing your mind and technique with the passion you have for the music is how you play at your optimal best.

Specific techniques for practicing, listening objectively, and keeping your mind focused during performance are the foundation of my coaching sessions. Feel free to contact me for more details.


I have coached pianists for success in auditions, competitions, and recital or concerto performances for over 20 years.

“Thanks for your patient help!”

Joel G.

“I've had a real positive experience taking lessons online, their's been great communication between the instructor and I, my built in camera integrated properly making it easy to connect, and my teacher has shared valuable and comprehensive information with me thus far. I'd highly recommend ZOEN to any aspiring musician of any kind of any level, and I look forward to continuing to utilize its services.”
