Professional pianist and teacher with M.M. in Piano Performance and Pedagogy. Offering lessons in the Greater New Haven and Tri-State area.

Methodology

I'm all about meeting the student where they are. That might mean a young or an adult beginner wanting to learn how to read, or an intermediate or advanced student who is looking to take their playing to the next level. I enjoy working with any student that has a love for music and a willingness to learn!

Background

I've been giving lessons for 10 years and have taught hundreds of students over that time. I teach all genres of piano including pop, classical, jazz, and more. I have both a BM and MM in Piano Performance and Pedagogy, having spent time at some of the top music school in the country. My students have ranged from four to 80 years old and have gone on to participate in festivals, recitals, competitions, with a few having been admitted to collegiate music schools and conservatories across the country.
