I am a friendly and energetic teacher who has the training and experience to help you or your children succeed at the piano. My goal is to help you enjoy making music.
I have fifteen years of teaching experience in American colleges, hold a bachelor's in piano performance and pedagogy, and a master's in performance. During my time teaching I have enjoyed working with students of all ages, from beginners to dedicated musicians auditioning for top conservatories and competitions.
Important COVID-19 Update
Due to the seriousness of the COVID-19 pandemic, I have instituted several policies in order to protect us all and help limit the spread of the infection. These policies include disinfecting the piano between each student, wearing face masks during in-person lessons, and requiring each student to wash their hands upon entering the studio. I am also now offering remote Zoom lessons. Thanks for your cooperation!
Virtual Lessons via Zoom
We are all adapting to very different circumstances, and now more than ever can benefit from the healing power of music. As a result, I am now happy to offer lessons through Zoom.
Lessons in my home
Lessons are available at my home studio near Clark Park on a beautiful new acoustic piano.
Lessons in your home
Lessons are also available in the comfort of your own home. House call travel costs are calculated from 19143 and are applied if the commute exceeds ten minutes.
After studying and applying many teaching methods, including the completion of Pace and Suzuki certifications, I have found that different methods work best for different students.
As a result, methods and repertoire are custom tailored to best support your goals, keeping lessons fun and productive.
30-minute lessons are $35
45-minute lessons are $50
60-minute lessons are $60
Please keep in mind lesson fees also cover preparation time, studio material costs, self-employment taxes, certifications, continuing education, and more.
Appropriate lesson length is related to student age and experience level, and will be discussed and agreed upon over the first few lessons.
