Bio

My love for teaching has led me to positions at universities and a high school, as well as private teaching and coaching of music students. As a summa cum laude graduate of my undergraduate college class, I went on to earn three graduate degrees (including my doctorate) at Yale -- so I'm well acquainted with hard work and what it takes to succeed in our field.

My love for teaching has led me to positions at universities and a high school, as well as private teaching and coaching of music students. As a summa cum laude graduate of my undergraduate college class, I went on to earn three graduate degrees (including my doctorate) at Yale -- so I'm well acquainted with hard work and what it takes to succeed in our field. I enjoy working with people who have a desire to succeed as well, especially those who have the courage to seek out additional tutoring or mentoring along the way.

I've enjoyed teaching both in the classroom setting and individual tutoring, along with ensemble work, for over 24 years. For me, teaching music has been not only a career but a deeply rewarding and enjoyable calling.

To me, tutoring is all about your needs. We'll promptly identify just what needs work, whether it's understanding some particular element in music theory or a procedure for understanding the context of music history, or how to write species counterpoint, or just why Beethoven's music influenced so many others. I have performed throughout the US, Europe and the Caribbean, and still find joy every day in teaching and making music.

I hold myself to a very high standard, and seek frequent feedback. Tutoring is not about the teaching, it's about the learning. My only job is to help you. I look forward to hearing from you and to provide the support, insight and technique to help you achieve your very best.
