Innovative  &  Inspiring Instruction for Teens and Adults
Imagine sitting down at the piano and playing music that excites you.

Whether you envision classical repertoire, playing your favorite pop songs, or understanding the language of music theory, it's all possible with the right guidance! You want more than just an instructor who "teaches all styles." You're looking for a lesson experience that resonates with who you are and how your brain works.

For over 20 years, I've guided students to realize their unique musical potential in a fun and supportive environment.

My students benefit from a comprehensive pedagogical approach that interweaves elements of classical methodology, pop sensibility, music theory and the Taubman approach to technique. Whether your goal is Chopin or Coldplay, you’ll gain an understanding of music that will transform the way you play and listen.


Our time together goes beyond simple skill acquisition. It's a place to ask questions, stretch creatively, and feel accomplished. We'll celebrate all of your successes along the way, including the shifts in thinking and process that are the fruits of developing as a creative person.

If you're ready to take your musical journey to a higher level, I invite you to connect.

What Students Are Saying


"You're amazing in being able to turn a vague kernel of thought I might have into an actual harvest of piano teaching and learning.

You have untapped something in me that might just be an important part of who I actually am."


- Dennis A.


"You have made my life better

by teaching me to play the piano in the unique way that you have, and I'm incredibly grateful for that. I'm a happier person with music in my life."

- Nicole W.


"I've talked with friends who took lessons as they were growing up. When I tell them about my experience, they all say they wished they had a teacher like you.

You're extremely knowledgeable, patient, supportive, perceptive, encouraging, challenging and FUN!"

- Deb K.

Exploring the piano at 50 years old

gave me a language that I didn't know, a confidence that I needed, and a selfish, only-for-me hobby that gave me the idea to do other things like that just for me.

Not about kids, not about a job, not about a husband.

Having piano in my life opened up doors to other possibilities.

- Lori A.

You have an incredible gift of making complicated music theory easy, accessible, and fun. You have challenged my brain and my ear in ways I could not have imagined.

My creativity and critical thinking in all aspects of my life have benefited.

- Amelia C.
