"Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and life to everything."

I am currently teaching piano both in person, and online with a comprehensive setup that allows us both to easily and fully see and hear each other almost as if we were in the same room sitting next to each other!
ABOUT ME AND MY TEACHING APPROACH:
I strive to maintain a teaching environment that is safe, supportive, welcoming, nurturing, and compassionate, empowering kids (and adults!) to be their fun, authentic, wacky, creative, imaginative selves!
Working with kids with ADHD or who otherwise have an abundance of energy and imagination is a special passion of mine.
I also really enjoy supporting retired adults in rediscovering their musical dreams of which they may have lost track, helping them in finding self-fulfillment, developing confidence, overcoming self-criticism and self-doubt, getting in touch with a deeper sense of Self.
I believe imagination, play, and freedom of self-expression are all important aspects of the creative process of music learning, and that music is a natural form of creative self-expression.
I subscribe to a whole-person approach to music study integrating Body, Mind, and Spirit. With adult students especially, we even sometimes explore music study as a meditative practice.
An avid life-long learner, I enjoy staying on the cutting edge of both in-person and online music instruction!
I love to stay up to date on the brain-based science of learning and it’s practical application to music study.
As a performing pianist, I perform regularly most Sunday mornings as pianist at the First Unitarian Universalist Society of Burlington, Vermont.
I also love supporting the community as pianist for area middle school and high school students for performances and auditions.
I teach lessons in-person and online out of my inviting home studio on the shores of beautiful Lake Champlain in Burlington, VT.
