Overview:

I hold a Master's Degree in Piano Performance from the University of Connecticut, Storrs, combined with over twenty years of experience as an Arranger, Music Consultant, Vocal Coach, Technical Supervisor, Piano Teacher and Accompanist.  During my undergraduate career at Western Connecticut State University I studied and appeared with many great performing artists including the late Skitch Henderson, Ksenia Nosikova, William Braun, and composer Joseph Schwantner. As a member of the WCSU orchestra, under the direction of Eric Lewis, I was given the opportunity to perform 20th and 21st century music. I have substantial accompaniment experience in the French, German, and Italian styles performing with the students of Boyd Schlaeffer, Margaret Astrup, and Perry Price.

EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching since 2004.  I am proficient in all genres of music from the Baroque to Jazz.  I do not require my students to engage in studio recitals. 

METHODS USED

My preferred method of teaching for beginner students is my own adaptation of the Thompson method with strong emphasis on theory and technique. A study of intervalic relationships, chords and progressions combined with terminology, sight reading, ear training and form will provide the student with skills which will allow them to play any style and genre of music they desire. Although the Suzuki method seems to be popular today, I have discovered many short comings of this pedagogical approach and often renders a good pianist limited in their capabilities as a well rounded musician.  I thereby, eccentially, have combined these two methods of teaching. 

LESSON STYLE

It is important to keep the student focused and engaged in their studies.  It is rewarding in itself to have the student excited and eager to further their development of instrument.  I accomplish this by adapting each student's lessons by their individual needs and desires.

Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.
