About me

I have taught piano since 1968 in my private studio. Some of my students have won major scholarships at music colleges in the United States.

I believe in music training for everyone. It is important for children and adults to be able to read, understand and enjoy music. It is also important for the students to learn all aspects of playing including the counting, fingering, phrasing and musicianship of the piece. If a student wishes to major in music I will assist him/her in applications, auditions and other preparation.
