My mission is to provide a warm and supportive environment in which all students can explore the world of music with confidence and joy. Lessons are content-centered around performance pieces, popular songs the student wants to play, theory and technique.

I hold a degree from The Ohio State University where I studied Piano Performance with internationally-recognized Richard Tetley- Kardos. I'm a certified Yamaha instructor and also have taught in my private studio for more than 10 years. I am a member of the Music Teacher National Association and National Federation of Music Clubs. I also served as Board Secretary for the Phoenix Music Teachers Association and coordinated Music at the Mall for numerous years.

In addition, I continue to accompany, perform in piano ensembles and play for various events.
