Where are Lessons Offered
In Teacher Studio
In Student Home
Teaching Students Fills my days with joy while engaging my creativity. In my studio, I focus on tailoring lessons to a child's learning style. For younger
students, each lesson incorporates creative manipulatives and games to encourage success and provide a fun environment for learning. In my experience, the best lessons and the best playing happen when we are having the best time. The highlights of a piano lesson are seeing a child's feeling of accomplishment and watching a love for music grow. I look forward to developing a long lasting relationship with your child that goes beyond a year of piano lessons. My desire is to foster a journey that progresses from playing "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" to playing Mozart sonatas.

My Musical Education Background
I have managed my private piano studio, teaching ages three and older for five years. After completing my first year of piano performance at Dallas Baptist University (DBU), I transferred to Thomas Edison State College where I completed my Bachelor of Arts in Music, with an emphasis in piano pedagogy. While working on my degree, I studied piano with Dr. Beth Quillian (DBU), David Renner (UT) and Sheila Paige (Taubman instructor). My studies with Dr. Quillian and Sheila Paige included the Taubman method, which helps pianists overcome injuries from improper playing and emphasizes pain free playing. Professionally, I am an active member of the Heart of Texas Suzuki Organization, serving as secretary, as well as a member of the Austin District Music Teachers Association (ADMTA) and Music Teachers National Association. I currently teach in the North Austin area.
Genres and Subjects Taught
I teach classical music to children of all ages. For those who wish I also enjoy incorporating music from other genres into a student's musical study. Additionally I like to give all students a strong theory background to prepare them for however they choose to use their music.
