About Me

I have over 14 years experience teaching piano and voice to children, teens, and adults locally in the Phoenix, Arizona valley at two studio locations:

  1. Harmony House; 15229 North Cave Creek Road, Phoenix, Arizona 85032
  2. First United Methodist Church; 9849 North 105th Avenue, Sun City, Arizona 85351
  3. I also offer piano lessons online anywhere

I use award-winning music technology to accelerate the learning process. This provides an interactive experience and makes learning the piano fun and easy. Expect to learn up to 4 times faster than with books alone.

I also have a recording of solo piano music that's available on Amazon, iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify and other online services.
