I am an easygoing and enthusiastic teacher, beginning to
advanced levels. Lessons will include note reading, hand position
and technique, rhythm, practice strategies, interpretation/tone,
and basic music theory. I will put together a learning strategy
and work with you to choose appropriate music individualized for
you based on your experience level and desired repertoire.
I look forward to working with you!
I began playing piano by ear at age 6 and started lessons at 8. I began
taking lessons from a professor of piano at Sacramento State University
in junior high and continued on to enroll in college there. I earned a
Bachelor of Music degree in Piano Performance from California State University in Sacramento
and went on to study piano for two years at the graduate level
at the Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University, Bloomington.
I began teaching private lessons during my college years through the
Creative Arts program at Sacramento State and in my own piano studio.
I have also taught at the Music Box music store in Lodi, California, and
taught group and individual piano classes at Sherman Clay in Oakland.
