Personal Statement
 
I love music, and am dedicated to teaching the enjoyment of it to students of all ages! I see music as a holistic and energizing force, and believe that balance of the mind and body can be achieved through the study of music. I have fun teaching, and learning sessions are exciting, personable and dynamic! Students can expect to gain the physical techniques and creative approaches to music that will guide them toward success. My pianistic lineage traces to Beethoven (through Katherine Faricy and Lili Kraus), and I uphold the finest standards in musical training.
