About me

Having just moved to Pflugerville, I am now accepting new students of all ages. I have been teaching for the past 15 years, and have had a highly successful studio in Houston. Music has been an integral part of my life since childhood. I have studied music all through school and culminating with The Longhorn Band while studing at The University of Texas. I love teaching, love children, and love music. I try to discover each child's talent, and build their musical strengths, whether it be their quick reading skills, good pitch, rhythmic sense, or strong musical/emotional passion. I try to give the students some choice in their literature, and motivate them through their success in their performance and pride in their ability to perform in recitals.

Specialties

I teach piano and saxophone lessons weekly at my home studio. Music theory is included in all lessons. I will teach all genres of music to beginners and intermediates. As the student becomes more advanced, I will focus on the genres that the student enjoys the most.

Lesson details

Each weekly piano lesson is 45 minutes in length. The first 30 minutes of the lesson is a traditional private lesson on the piano or keyboard. Then the last 15 minutes the student practices their songs for the week on my keyboard. All saxophone lessons are 30 minutes weekly.

Education and Accreditation

Bachelor of Arts from The University of Texas at Austin
