– I offer beginning piano through advanced studies for children through adults

– Specializing in traditional, jazz, blues, and standards

– Recognition of rhythmic, melodic and harmonic patterns

– Analyzing relationships between scales, bass lines & chords

– Advanced studies include: sight reading, ear training, jazz improvisation, modern harmony, and composition

– Offering master classes in bass line development, comping, improvisation & re-harmonization

– Completely customized curriculum for each student, designed to take his or her piano and musical skills to the next level


I try to encourage each student to follow his or her heart and pass on the passion that I have for music, which continues to be a life-long study and journey for me.

The learning process should always move forward.
