A Note from the Teacher

A Note from the Teacher

Teaching has always been one of my lifelong passions. In a way, piano teaching found me. While still a high school student, my mother, then a piano teacher, took on another job. I soon found myself with an instant Piano Studio!

What I enjoy most about teaching is two-fold—sharing my love of music with each student individually, and participating in a student’s overall development through their years of study.

My goal is to maximize each student’s potential at the piano, and inspire them to become a versatile musician.  Having taught students of all ages for more than 35 years, I have found that a comprehensive music program with high standards is the cornerstone for success.

I thrive on teaching a variety of students and enjoy the diversity each student brings. Whether I am teaching the easiest elementary solo or the most advanced Beethoven Sonata, each lesson is a unique experience full of exciting challenges.

My teaching style reflects my experience as a performer.  Having spent most of my life performing in a variety of settings, I enjoy teaching my students healthy pianistic habits and effective practice strategies that lead to polished piano playing.

Nurturing a student’s development is deeply satisfying.  I consider it a great privilege to serve as a mentor and role model for each student during their years of piano study, and guiding them on their personal journey of musical discovery.
