I have over 15 years of experience teaching student young and old, beginner and advanced. My comprehensive approach includes theory, ear training, sightreading, improvisation and how to practice efficiently. I think of myself as a coach, helping students of all ages and abilities reach their full potential. In addition to experience, I have a Masters Degree in Piano, certifications from the Royal Conservatory of Music (Toronto) and the Music Teachers National Association. I also regular attend and present at local, state, and national music teachers conferences, and I have served on numerous boards and committees. I have been published in American Music Teacher and am an examiner for the Royal Conservatory of Music based out of Toronto Canada.
