I am a pianist, harpsichordist, and educator in the Cincinnati area. I recently completed my doctoral degree in piano at the University of Cincinnati's College-Conservatory of Music. In 2018, I graduated with my master's degree in piano and harpsichord from Indiana University. I am passionate about a large variety of musical styles and enjoying teaching and performing. I have experience teaching piano and music theory in both private and collegiate settings, helping students to accomplish their musical goals. I enjoy working with students of all ages and levels, regardless of their past experience.

What makes me an outstanding proofreading tutor is that I frequently produce writing for a variety of different media. My writing has been published by the Music Teachers National Association and I frequently write doctoral-level essays in my field. I am currently writing CD liner notes and preparing a review in a music magazine. When working with students, my main goal is to help them to get their message across effectively and concisely. With proper grammar, sentence structure, and organization, writing can be powerful and clear.

My background as a music teacher and performer makes me a highly effective music tutor. In the past five years, I have taught piano and music theory courses at Indiana University's Jacobs School of Music and the University of Cincinnati's College-Conservatory of Music. When working with students, I help them to identify their goals and find ways to appropriately structure our work together to sequence concepts in an appropriate way. I look forward to helping students master their musical goals!

Thanks for your interest! Please feel free to reach out to me - I look forward to helping you!
