MEET THE INSTRUCTOR
Hi and welcome to my studio webpage! I'm so glad you've stopped by and taken an interest in piano lessons; learning to play the piano is such a rewarding endeavor!
Music has always been an influential part of my life. I have been playing piano for nearly two decades and first began teaching in 2008. I completed approximately 30 credit hours in music coursework during my time in college and was blessed to study with some wonderful private teachers — Dr. Alan Weinberg, Dr. Dana Milan, Dr. E.J. Choe and Dr. Andrew Hisey. My favorite aspect of teaching is getting to witness, firsthand, how much joy music can bring to my students and to those whom they share it with! I get to help them, not only enjoy music and grow as musicians, but grow as people. My students develop confidence in their abilities, which carries over to all other areas of life. I always like to say, "Music lessons are not just music lessons, but life lessons."
