Making music is one of the most holistic, life-enriching activities because it involves all levels of being – body, mind, heart, and spirit.

As a music teacher, my job is to help each student develop their unique innate creativity, increase the level of joy in their life, and give them lifelong tools for self-expression. Music has been such a huge gift in my life, and I am privileged to be able to pass it along to others through teaching and performing. I enjoy helping each student find his or her own musical voice, whether it’s through playing written music, improvising, playing by ear, arranging, composing, or some combination. My background is in classical music, but I enjoy many other styles as well, including rock/pop/alternative, jazz, and world music. My favorite classical composers are Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Brahms, Chopin, Debussy, and Ravel, and I enjoy playing rock/pop music by Coldplay, Keane, Sarah McLachlan, Alanis Morissette, and Annie Lennox, to name a few.
