I am a musician with a passion for, and dedication to, teaching. A fantastic communicator both on the bandstand and in the classroom, I bring a creative energy to helping you explore the fundamentally important foundations of music.
I have a BA in Music Performance from New York University, with an emphasis on Jazz Piano. Previously, I've studied classical piano repertoire and graduated from a performing arts high school. I've won several DownBeat music awards for original jazz compositions and arrangements, and I continue to write for a variety of genres including jazz, hip-hop, and soul. I also score music for independent film.
I have experience teaching students ages 5 to 18, and I also lead toddlers who are too young to learn an instrument in music and movement development. I know that, together, we can bring a sense of spontaneous creativity and excitement to all your musical studies. I aim to please, to help, and to have fun.
