About Me

I have been teaching for 26 years. My students range from kindergarten to adult, through beginner to advanced. My goal is to give each student a solid foundation in piano performance.

My students are given opportunities to perform in recitals and music club events.

I am a member of the New Jersey Federation Music Clubs and NJPVMTA.

My Musical Education Background

I hold a Bachelor's and Master's degree in piano performance. I have studied under the direction of Irwin Buchner, Eleanor Statemore, Edmund Battersby, and Barbara Holmquest.

Genres and Subjects Taught

I teach classical and pop pieces. All pieces are carefully chosen to teach technique and musical expression. I also include technical exercises and theory in the lesson.

$45.00 per 1/2 hour lesson
$55.00 per 45 min. Lesson

My Certifications and Awards



Winner of Outstanding Artistic Achievement Award for Montclair State College

MEA Competitions for three consecutive years with superior ratings

Gold Cup recipient in the National Federation of Music Clubs

Finalist in the Bach Concerto Competition, Princeton University, 1987

My Musical Influences

I have been influenced by all of my teachers. My first teacher studied in Germany and gave me a very strong classical foundation. My last three teachers were graduates of the Julliard School. They have given me a great deal of musical knowledge. Their expertise in the field allows me to pass it on to my own students.
