Piano Instruction and Performance
I am passionate about music and find so much delight in passing this passion along to my students!
My goal as an educator is to provide a learning environment in which students find enjoyment in the piano while acquiring the discipline and commitment to advance in skill. This process involves more than learning piano techniques – students will become confident in reading notes, identifying rhythmic patterns, and understanding basic music theory. I also believe that performance is an important ingredient in building confidence both as a musician and an individual – I therefore encourage my students to participate in the recitals I organize throughout the year.
Having taught in six countries and three languages, I always enjoy the diversity of my students. Those I have taught – whether beginners, intermediate, or advanced players – have come to me with an incredible range of musical and cultural backgrounds. You are just as unique as they are, and I look forward to making music together!
