Spreading the joy of making music!
Teaching Philosophy

My goal in teaching piano is to give the student the skills that he/she will need in order to be self-sufficient at the keyboard in sight reading, ear training, improvisation, music history, the easiest use of the body in piano technique, and in compelling musicianship.
