Live the life you have imagined.... Let the words of Thoreau be your inspiration! Allow me to lead you study of (classical) piano and/or French, and/or ESL. Whether you choose to study one subject or a blend of music and language, we can arrange it for you, and tailor it to your needs. I am currently an Adjunct Lecturer at Monroe College in French and Speech/Communications, English, Music Appreciation, and Geography. I have also been affiliated with Inlingua International Language Centers as an ESL instructor. Further, I ran a piano studio for a number of years, producing students who not only enjoyed playing, but consistently performed well in recital and competition. As well as being a professional musician, I have been in the music business in NYC with ASCAP (American Society of Composers, Authors & Publishers), and then with EMI Music Publishing. As well, I have run my own theater company, for which I wrote and performed musically in all my plays. No stranger to production, I am currently working in studio production and putting together special events and shows. I am prepared to work with students of all ages, both less and more advanced in study.
