Since 2012 I have been teaching piano using the Simply Music instruction method. Previously I spent 13 years teaching piano traditionally, but was unhappy with the results students were getting. I came from a traditionally-trained background, and completed theory and practical exams (up to grade 9) with the Royal Conservatory of Music, but always felt like I was missing depth and breadth in my own musical education.

Finding Simply Music was the key for me to better understand music, even after decades of formal lessons. It helped me in my own growth as a musician by putting together puzzle pieces that had been missing.

I am passionate about figuring out how students learn and helping them find their own breakthroughs in understanding. I teach children, teens, adults, and seniors.

In addition to offering in-studio lessons, I also offer lessons via Skype, and lessons to students with special needs. New classes start in September, and sometimes in January. I offer both private and group lessons, although private lesson times are only available between 9:00 - 3:00 EST.
