"Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and life to everything." ~ Plato
Experience the beauty and joy of making music!
I am currently accepting piano students of all ages and abilities at my private teaching studios in Burlington, Vermont and in Potsdam, New York!
A graduate with honors of the Crane School of Music at the State University of New York at Potsdam, I received my M.M. and B.M. in piano performance with concentrations in piano pedagogy and a minor in jazz studies. I have successfully taught piano privately to a wide variety of students in upstate New York and in Central Vermont for over 10 years.
Well-versed in classical and jazz piano, I also have experience performing in other musical styles as well including gospel, pop, rock, Latin, blues, ragtime and contra dance!
- reading music
- playing by ear
- music theory and harmony
- efficient, expressive piano technique
I individually tailor lessons to meet the needs and interests of each student. We can work together on anything from a pop song by Adele or Carole King, to blues or jazz improvisation, to playing pieces by Mozart or Chopin!
I offer an initial evaluation lesson free of charge where we can meet and work a little together to get a sense if it seems like a good student/teacher fit.
I am currently a member in good standing of the North Country Music Teachers Association in northern New York state.
