I love music and I love teaching music!  I enjoy working with students of all ages who are eager and excited to play piano.  I like to create an environment of high expectations, yet a creative and fun space in which students feel comfortable to learn.  Lessons are designed to meet the needs of each student.

I have piano performance degrees at the bachelor and masters level, and a doctorate in collaborative piano performance (B.M. Oberlin Conservatory; M.M. University of Illinois/Champagne-Urbana; D.M.A. University of North Carolina at Greensboro).
