I am a classically trained pianist with advanced degrees in piano performance, piano pedagogy,
accompaniment, and chamber music.
I am registered and certified member of the following organizations: Austin District Music Teachers
Association (ADMTA), National Guild of Piano Teachers, Music Teachers National Association (MTNA), and
Texas Music Teachers Association (TMTA).
I offer music lessons to all levels of students, from beginner to the very advanced.
My teaching philosophy:
I focus on building a strong music foundation based on technical skills, sound quality, rhythm and
a solid foundation in theory.
My students learn the discipline on how to master a musical piece; from the time the composition
is presented until it is perfect, and can be successfully performed in recitals, auditions, competitions, and festivals.
I introduce my students to a wide variety of piano styles including classical, jazz, popular, and
guide them in their musical interests, so that they learn to express themselves musically.
I understand that most students taking piano lessons will not be professional pianists in the future.
However, my goal is to teach them how to learn to play any musical piece so that they might
enjoy music for the rest of their lives.
