About me

I have 30+ years playing experience (classical piano), and was a free-lance pianist in NYC for several years playing with singers from the Met and NYC Opera Companies and classical instrumentalists. I'm also an active recording artist.

I have 20+ years experience teaching private music lessons and extensive experience in public and private school classrooms: pre-school, elementary general music; middle and high school orchestras, choirs, bands; high school music theory, ear training, music history, musicals, chamber groups.

Lesson details

My style is encouraging and comprehensive. Lessons are tailored to each individual. Everyone learns the basics; just the degree to which an area is developed differs from student to student. All students learn how to read music. Repertoire is also individualized, however all students learn classical and jazz. Students choose additional styles as they wish.
