I am passionate about teaching piano. I am convinced that learning music is an important and meaningful experience in any child’s development. Attention, care, patience and discipline are fundamental qualities needed in order to achieve success with my students.

For more than 25 years, my studio has been offering many opportunities for students to become skilled musicians and to participate in local, regional, and national festivals, performances, and competitions. My students range from children and adults, to amateurs and professionals of all levels.

Please call to schedule an interview and audition if interested.
