About Me

"The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires." -William Arthur Ward

Greetings Future Piano/Vocal Students:

In my younger years I was always inspired to watch pianists and singers of all genres of music. I have played and studied the piano for 23 years, and have taught piano and voice for over 14 years. I have a bachelor of arts degree in jazz piano performance from the University of Louisville, and I am finishing my masters in music education. I am a member of the Music Teachers National Association, Kentucky Music Educators Association, American Choral Directors Association, and I am certified in Zoldan Kodaly pedagogy with Solfa fundamentals.

I toured with the nationally known southern gospel band "The Nelons" in 2000. I have served in many churches as choral and praise and worship director, and I currently play jazz, funk, fusion, private parties, weddings, and recording studio gigs with various professional group throughout greater Louisville. As a choral composer and piano instructor, I teach in-depth music theory and improvisation.

My vision is to inspire my students, both children and adults, to learn music of various genres and styles in fun and exciting ways. My student not only learn to read music, but they learn how to improvise and solo over chord changes and compose their own melodies. From classical to jazz, and pop to rock, my students will learn how to take their musical knowledge and strive for their goals of playing for their own musical enjoyment, and becoming a successful musician.

Genres and Subjects Taught

PIANO / SINGING LESSONS My students and I not only focus on correct hand position, fingering, posture, quality of sound and piano technique, but also listening, development of personal music perception, and “getting the groove.” I also give my students basic knowledge of music theory and music history. All students receive specific instruction on how to practice. For technique and improvisation development my students play scales, chords, and arpeggios. For the development of different piano techniques, they also play music, which include learning how to read and improvise with chord charts. For development of personal music perception, my students play many different kinds of music pieces of their choice and my recommendations. They play jazz standards, classical music, contemporary music and show tunes. To ensure progress I recommend taking an hour lesson per week. Although half hour lessons are available, hour lessons will provide more time for the student to excel faster playing piano.
