My passion is music. I am a recent graduate of the Peabody Institute of the Johns Hopkins University where I studied music composition with Pulitzer Prize winning composer Kevin Puts. I also have bachelor's degrees in piano performance and composition from Northern Illinois University.

I have been teaching piano, theory and composition for four years now, and am dedicated to helping you learn about all aspects of music alongside your chosen field of study. I have worked with students of all ages, and have had students accepted into college music programs as well as perform at Carnegie Hall.

I tailor my piano lessons to my student's needs, often combining some music theory into the lesson. I believe that having a larger view on music and how it works can make a difference in how we perform and appreciate music of all types. I have worked mostly in the classical music genre, but I am fully capable of teaching and performing both jazz and pop music as well.

Whether you have studied music theory in the past or not, I can teach you everything from the very basics all the way up to advanced college-level music theory. I am well versed in the understanding of both classical and jazz music and would love to help you understand more about the music you love!

Composition lessons with me comprise of learning the craft of writing music. Subjects I typically cover are harmony, counterpoint, form, and aural skills. I also assign listening assignments and score study when deemed useful. I am dedicated to helping a student find and understand their own voice.
