About me

I am an experienced pianist and teacher, with a career as a performer.
As a teacher, I love to communicate my passionate love of music
while encouraging the development of your theoretical knowledge and technical abilities, so that you can express yourself with the music you enjoy, and achieve your musical goals.

In addition to working as a teacher and performer, I have given music therapy workshops.

My approach to music is a holistic one
I am also a yoga teacher, so I bring to my teaching and approach to the instrument an awareness of body/mind consciousness.

As a performer, I like to make music accessible by giving short introductions to the pieces I play, and by creating specific programs to fit particular occasions.

Specialties

I teach all ages from the very young to the mature student.
There is no "best" age to start: I enjoy making the piano accessible to everyone.
The key to learning is a desire to learn... it doesn't matter whether you are 8 years old or 85 !

In addition, I love to impart techniques and strategies for motivating yourself in your practice of the instrument.
You can introduce me to the pieces you would like to play, or I can propose different pieces to you according to your ability and musical tastes.

There are limitless possibilities, and I will make a personalized program with you to fit your goals.
