I am a pianist who has many years experience as a live performer, and also hold a Bachelor of Musical Arts degree (classical music) and an Associate of Arts degree (contemporary keyboards). I enjoy teaching students of all ages and levels, and also appreciate many styles of music. I encourage students to develop strong keyboard technique, improvisation, reading, and music theory/ear-training skills. Good practice habits are the key, and my enthusiasm motivates students to develop the discipline necessary to progress quickly.

For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students.

I have a Bachelor of Musical Arts degree (piano performance, classical music) from the University of Michigan, and an Associate Arts degree (contemporary/jazz/digital recording) from the Musicians Institute, Hollywood, CA. I have more than 10 years teaching experience (private lessons) and 20+ years experience as a live performer. I am also a published songwriter/composer, an avid reader and listener with a broad knowledge of music history and popular culture. I enjoy teaching students of all levels, but especially beginners and intermediate students. I lived in Berlin, Germany for 19 years and speak fluent German, as well as basic Italian.
