I love my students of ALL ages! We work together to make your dreams come true. This can be in subjects like math and reading, or to create or play beautiful music for you and others to hear. As a doctor of musical arts, I have passed the reading and writing comprehensive exams that take place in five consecutive days, each day writing up to twenty pages on subjects I have already studied, through reading and lectures, and revising that for publication--with no spell check in the first drafts!
I'm proud to be LIFETIME certified as a music teacher with Music Teachers' National Association, as well as to have earned a doctorate in piano and pedagogy with a masters' degree in clarinet. I have more than 10 years of success with students all the way from college down to kindergarten when we love what we do, even when its a little bit hard.We submit to a rigorous theory and technique training regimen with graduated levels for you to achieve, either in Illinois or all the way to Carnegie Hall.
