I began studying piano seriously at the age of 14. I had always been fascinated with music, playing with electronic keyboards and various other instruments from an early age.
I attended college at the University of Connecticut, where I majored in computer science. After receiving a master’s degree in this field, I decided to devote myself more seriously to music, and have since obtained a master’s degree in collaborative piano from the Hartt School.
I enjoy performing solo and collaborative works, especially classical art songs. I have recently performed numerous recitals with instrumentalists and vocalists.
As a teacher, my approach to piano is based on the idea that if we do what is physically comfortable and emotionally satisfying, good results will naturally follow. I believe in teaching in a low-pressure environment, helping students discover their natural coordination and musicality.
If there is one thing I hope my students will take away, it is this: Music is a fundamental part of what makes us human, and we all have the right and privilege to make our voices heard. The purpose of music study is to understand ourselves and sharpen our expressiveness.
