While I am classically trained, I try to tailor my approach to the needs of the students, and I encourage my students to learn whatever style of music they like. I believe learning music is challenging but is made easier if the student is having fun.
I am a pianist with a master's degree in piano performance and have been giving lessons privately since 2015. I have taught all ages; from young children to senior citizens. I have had students go on to study music at the university level after having studied with me. I have experience playing solo recitals as well as accompanying instrumentalists. All levels welcome to apply!

Independent Piano Teacher (2015-Current):
I have worked with students of all ages and have taught students who are interested in learning multiple styles including classical, jazz, ragtime, and blues. I have helped students to prepare to perform in joint recitals and to prepare for NYSSMA festivals.
St. Peter’s Episcopal Church Choir (2003-Current): I attend weekly rehearsals and Sunday services. Every year around Christmas time we perform Handel’s Messiah in which I sing the opening tenor recitative and aria. I was also the evangelist in the choir’s performance of Bach’s St. John’s Passion in 2016. I have traveled with the choir to sing services at Christ Church Cathedral, Oxford, UK (2007), Bristol Cathedral, Bristol, UK (2007), the National Cathedral, Washington DC (2009), Worchester Cathedral, Worchester, UK (2013), and Chichester Cathedral, Chichester, UK (2017)
Accompanist (2015-Current): Many local teachers have hired me to accompany their students at NYSSMA festivals, and in recitals. I have also been hired as a substitute choir director and pianist, at St. John the Evangelist Lutheran Church, Albany NY; and at First Reformed Church, Albany NY
