About me

I am a performing pianist, vocalist, Celtic harpist and Clawhammer banjo player. I love variety both in terms of repertoire and instruments. I am a classically trained pianist and vocalist and recognize the importance of a strong foundation in classical music education. I also appreciate the challenge and fun of playing different styles and strive to find a balance. I incorporate skills into my lessons that help my students develop into well-rounded musicians capable of both reading music and playing by ear or lead sheet.

Experience
My musical education began at home and expanded to singing in a choir and taking private lessons on my first instrument (the violin). I added piano, voice, flute and theory lessons when I was in high school. By the end of high school, I had chosen to pursue piano and voice as my main instruments. As a student, I enjoyed performing in festivals and had the wonderful opportunity to tour Europe with the United States Collegiate Choir. As an adult I perform regularly in folk festivals, for weddings and every week as a church pianist.

Specialties

My specialty is young students. I absolutely love the Music For Young Children method and think it provides the best music foundation possible. I have had extensive experience with young children through my work as a children's librarian, Mother Goose Facilitator and Parent and Tot program coordinator.
Although my specialty is young students, I really enjoy the variety involved in teaching older students as well.

Lesson details

I offer private piano, vocal and Celtic harp lessons as well as group Music for Young Children lessons. My private lessons are 30 minutes for beginners and one hour for more advanced students. The Music For Young Children group lessons are an hour long and include the parents.
