About Me

Piano/keyboard lessons are the gateway to musical knowledge. They are about fun, self expression, early cognitive abilities, and for a few, a career in music. Why not study with a seasoned performer who has taught successfully at every level from early childhood to College music major? While I teach students to read music, they are free to choose repertoire from any style.

One perk that sets me apart from most private teachers is the availability of  studio recitals throughout the season.  Students are not required to perform in these, but most choose to in order to please the parents, grandparents, etc.  Performance dates add a lot of incentive for students to practice.  They learn the lessons of committment, planning, memory skills and many things that go into other aspects of life.

My Musical Education Background

B.A. in music from Hampshire College
M.M. in Piano from New England Conservatory of Music

Teachers include Konrad Wolff, Katja Andy, Monica Jakuc, Edmund Battersby and coachings with many famous musicians.

My professional career includes solo recitals in Carnegie Recital Hall, other NY Venues and cutting edge chamber ensembles such as No Exit and Cleveland Chamber Collective.

Genres and Subjects Taught

I have taught piano at Mount Union College and Hiram College, with decades of experience as a private teacher.
Currently, I am a faculty member at Cleveland State University, where I teach composition, theory, Counterpoint, and Orchestration.
I also offer keyboard classes as a more relaxed way to pass the sumemr months.

Lesson Rates

Paying by the individual lesson is $20 for a half an hour.

The semester fee (which can be prorated) breaks down to about $16 for a half an hour lesson. Travel fee is extra, depending on location and the number of other students nearby.

My Certifications and Awards

I have been certified by Music Teachers National Association, of which I have been a member since 1980. I was also a member of the Fortnightly Musical Club of Cleveland, which was dissolved recently after almost a century of existence.
