About me

I started playing the piano at age 5. I have been playing the piano for twenty years and I have had the privilege of teaching for over seven. I have experience with students of all ages! I specialize with beginners, but I can take new students at an intermediate level.

My goal is to give you an enjoyable learning experience. I have fun with teaching and I like my students to have fun as well. I do have high expectations for my students and I want to see them succeed and progress each week. I try to keep a good balance between work and fun. On one hand, practicing is essential for success; on the other, the piano is a beautiful instrument that has given me so much joy and I would like to pass that joy on to you.

Music touches something special in all of us and I love bringing out the beautiful part in those who are learning to speak the language of music. It brings people together. I believe an instrument is an extension of one's self. It is a tool that we can use to express how we're feeling; we can release our emotions through our fingers instead of keeping it inside.

Music affects so many aspects of our lives. It strengthens certain parts of the human brain that increases math and reading skills. Children who are trained in playing an instrument have much higher grades and tend to excel in other areas as well. Music instills confidence, discipline, and motivation; all which are very important and necessary skills in becoming successful individuals.

I believe playing an instrument is one of the most beneficial skills that can be learned. Not only does it benefit the individual, but those around them are also benefitting from the gift of the music being created.

“Music speaks what cannot be expressed, soothes the mind and gives it rest, heals the heart and makes it whole, flows from heaven to the soul.”-Anonymous

Lesson details

I generally spend 2/3 of the lesson working on learning music and techniques, and the other 1/3 is spent on theory and gaining a greater understanding of how music is structured.

Education and Accreditation

I am currently studying with Dr. Jie Lu at the University of Utah and I am a Sophomore in working towards my BM in Piano Performance.
