I am a graduate of the Eastman School of Music and Interlochen Arts Academy where I studied composition, piano, music theory, orchestration, music history, and a lot more. I also have extensive experience in film scoring, recording, and music production and can take a student through the intricacies of modern media music. I have been teaching music for over 20 years, having taught countless lessons to students of all ages and abilities. If you're a beginner I can get you started on the right foot, help you overcome your challenges and meet your goals if you are intermediate, get you prepped for college auditions and performances if you're advanced, and teach you how to record and produce music for yourself or any kind of media production.

No two music students are alike so I customize my teaching style on a student by student basis. For those seeking a more casual experience, we can keep it casual, for those seeking to advance quickly, I can create a strict lesson plan to get you where you want to go.

I have extensive expertise and experience in Classical Piano, Composition, Music Theory, Orchestration, Arranging, Music History, Music Notation and Engraving, Counterpoint, Film Scoring, Recording, and Music Production

Nothing makes the teaching experience more gratifying for me than seeing my students enjoying their progress. I am committed to making a lesson structure and curriculum that fits my students' goals as well as creating a stimulating and positive lesson experience.
