Creative expression is a natural inclination of the human spirit. All human beings have the ability to commune with musical language as a medium for creativity. Everyone has the capacity for active engagement with the piano.
I have never required the demonstration of exceptional talent or strong aptitude for music in order for someone to study with me. I welcome those who possess a love for music coupled with the sincere desire to enjoy the piano.
I coach and prepare aspiring career pianists for university and conservatory studies. I teach adults who are returning to the piano after a long intermission, having studied in their youth. Some are drawn to piano studies for self-healing and personal enrichment. I design each person’s curriculum interactively, based upon their particular interests, goals, needs, and aspirations. As a pianist and teacher of diverse background and education, I offer a wide palette for musical exploration.
The natural world is a symphony unto itself comprised of melody, harmony and rhythm. Music and nature form an intimate vibratory network. Thus, musical studies cultivate one’s attunement and relationship to the earth.
The piano serves as a gateway to positive energy as it raises our own physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual vibrations, allowing vitality to flow throughout our daily lives. Involvement with this marvelous instrument contributes to our holistic wellness. Simply put, music is life enhancing.
I am here to guide and assist students in making music. I make it possible to experience music’s benefits and joys as I facilitate the creative process, sharing my experience of the wonders and enchantment of the piano. My hope is that they will play it forward.
