I love to teach people how to play piano! My job is to keep you motivated! I'll teach whatever it takes to keep you coming back. I specialize in beginners–youngsters or adults. I teach how to read music, keyboard patterns and harmony, and any level of repertoire or theory you could be interested in. I've been teaching for 35 years, and am a Nationally Certified Teacher of Music and a Florida State Certified Teacher of Music. I co-authored 13 levels of Aural and Written Theory Workbooks for the state of Florida. Call me and we'll get started!

My Musical Influences
"I've never known a musician who regretted being one. Whatever deceptions life may have in store for you, music itself is not going to let you down." --- Virgil Thompson. My parents always played music in our home; uncles with great singing voices; singing around the piano for the holidays; two excellent pre-collegiate teachers who gave me excellent pre-collegiate training; scholarships to study music; participation in the BCMTA/FSMTA/MNTA local, state and national music teachers groups with a high standard of excellence; a fabulous coach at FAU where I achieved a Certificate in Piano Pedagogy and Performance. I just love playing Bach in the morning!
