I have been teaching piano since 2000. I have experience working with children in a variety of settings. I have been trained in music specifically for young children, however I work well with students of any age. My educational background includes many years studying flute and piano, as well as fine art. I am degreed in music and am an active member of the Music Teacher’s Association of California (MTAC) which sponsors programs such as Certificate of Merit™.

I attend many teaching workshops and conferences related to music and pedagogy, as I believe that a constant flow of ideas and new information is what keeps me passionate about what I do. I love music and I love people. I believe there is musical potential in each and every person. The music within all people deserves to be drawn out and nurtured.
