I have played the piano since I was 4 years old, and I started my accompanying and performing career in High School. I worked for several years as a Church Pianist where I accompanied choirs and voice and instrumental soloists. I also performed myself as a soloist during services and outside of Church as well, gaining experience in several different genres of music, such as Classical, Spiritual/Gospel/Christian, Popular Music, Musicals, Rock, and a tiny bit of Jazz. My performance continued into my Undergraduate career where I also accompanied school and college choirs, along with large ensembles and vocal soloists. I recently graduated in the Summer of 2012 with my Bachelor's of Arts in Music, with a concentration in Piano. For the past 2 years I worked as an accompanist to local public schools in the Washington, D.C. area and as a Piano Teacher in my own private studio and through a Music & Arts chain on the East Coast.

While I have harbored a deep love for music since I was a young child, I find a true sense of accomplishment and worth when I teach. I love being able to share a gift as mysterious and enriching as music with all ages of students. Seeing a student light up when they finally understand an important principal after lots of hard work is such a joyous experience, and I truly treasure being able to share something as special as music with my students.

Lessons with me are unique in that I travel to wherever the student is. I currently do not have a space large enough to provide an adequate piano studio, and I find that students truly appreciate the convenience of a teacher who shows up at their doorstep, so this is how I have decided to continue to run my business. I travel throughout the Minneapolis/St. Paul area, and would love the chance to be an encouragement to your musical studies.
