I earned my Bachelor of Music Degree in Piano Performance from The North Carolina School of the Arts where my teachers were Marian Hahn and Robert McDonald. I also received the Master of Arts in Teaching Degree from The University of the Arts in Philadelphia. I began teaching piano in 1995 and, more specifically, since 1999, I've been teaching The Taubman Approach. In addition to my teaching experience, I have also performed extensively in both the U.S. and abroad, both as soloist and collaborative musician.


My teaching is based upon The Taubman Approach. The Taubman Approach is a ground breaking analysis of the mostly invisible movements that make up a virtuoso technique. This approach helps pianists overcome technical limitations and can also cure playing related injuries and help those who have never experienced injuries to avoid them. It is my belief that whatever one's aspirations may be, everyone can benefit from learning the principles of coordinate movement. When these principles are applied correctly, the student is often able to achieve musical goals which they had previously believed to be impossible. The result is greater freedom and ease in one's playing, as well as a greater range of musical expression. I truly believe that studying the piano can and should be an enjoyable and richly rewarding experience and I am committed to helping pianists overcome their limitations and achieve their musical goals.
