Third Year of dual degree program: BM New England Conservatory, Contempory Improvisation Piano BA Tufts University, American Studies
I am a multi-instrumentalist, student, and teacher who is passionate about performing and sharing music. I have been performing music at University concerts and other music venues since high school. I have composed music for various projects including a score for an original musical, "Only Human."
I have been teaching private lessons for the past few years with students ranging from beginners to college age. I am constantly learning more from all my students. I have worked with larger groups in the Somerville Public Schools, Tufts Community Music Program and the Salem YMCA Summer Program.
For younger students, I believe in the importance of solidifying technique and understanding of the piano along with developing an excitement for music. With older students, I guide the lessons based on their interests. I believe strongly in the importance of ear training for students of all ages to provide a deeper understanding of the music.
I let the interest of the students drive my teaching style. Most importantly, music should be an enjoyable activity. I have high expectations for students, but believe strongly in the importance of always being positive and encouraging.
