My experiences as a classical pianist have brought me in contact with the public ages 7- 70 in a variety of venues. Over the last twenty-five years I taught general music instruction for public and private schools, accompanied ballet classes for private ballet schools and large ballet companies, and taught private piano lessons to children, teens, young adults, and adults. My classical piano lessons include theory, composition, improvisation, and classical piano literature. I am a very curious person by nature and enjoy communicating with people of all ages by asking thoughtful questions so we may create healthy, joyful, and aesthetic lives through the enjoyment and study of music. I have a great sense of humor along with excellent communication, planning skills and creativity to guide and transform the interests of all into an enjoyable and productive experience. We are all life-long learners who can learn from each other so we can share our knowledge, perspectives, and experiences to enhance each others lives. I value kindness, compassion, understanding, patience, and creativity as the elements to a life well lived and a job well done. I have a great sense of humor.
