I am a nurturing, positive and patient teacher to all ages and levels. I have over 25 years of teaching experience. I believe that studying music helps develop many skills such as discipline, dedication, and perseverance. Learning to play the piano helps increase one's self-esteem, physical coordination, fine motor skills and concentration.

Genres and Subjects Taught
I believe that learning classical music serves as the best foundation in learning to play the piano, however, if the student desires to study other styles, I will accommodate, after the student has achieved a satisfactory level in playing classical music.
