About Me

I began playing piano at four years old when I picked out Jingle Bells on my toy keyboard. Blessed to have teachers who encouraged my ear as well as my performance skills, I developed a variety of piano skills including accompanying and songwriting. I studied at Berklee College of Music in voice, piano and songwriting. I have a degree in Musical Theater from University of Northern Colorado where I accompanied voice students on the piano and tutored music theory. Currently, along with teaching piano, I am the Director of Music at Christ on the Mountain Church where I direct choirs, accompany church services, and work with musicians ages 4-84.

Songwriting has always been one of my favorite hobbies. I have recorded several songs and been a finalist for many songwriting competitions.

Teaching music is exciting to me. I believe in giving piano players a variety of tools to make them great pianists. Along with performance skills, this includes a knowledge of theory, scales, complete chord comprehension, ear training, and accompanying skills.

My Musical Education Background

BA Musical Theatre from University of Northern Colorado
Studied at Berklee College of Music in Voice/Piano/Songwriting

Genres and Subjects Taught

I offer instruction in performance, accompanying, theory, ear training, songwriting, composition, chord structure, and improvisation.

With younger students, lessons are focused on piano basics.

With older students, I try to determine the individual goals of the particular student and together we determine the area of focus.
