I've been teaching piano since 2010 and I continue to learn and grow with my students.
I work with students of all levels, ages, and abilities. My students range from complete beginners (of all ages), to young aspiring professional musicians, and to adults who wish to return to the piano.
Studying piano gives the opportunity to develop a discipline and to learn how to listen in a variety of ways. One learns to develop physical coordination, and also to read and interpret a language. As players we also get the opportunity to make art. The journey of learning and discovery is endless.
Students also learn how to play expressively and develop tone at the instrument. How do we hear what’s really on the page? What are we trying to express when we play a piece? We learn styles from different eras, and realize that expression in music is infinite.
It is important for students to perform for an audience and share their music. I host two student recitals a year, and find other opportunities for students to perform and compete.
I offer lessons in Wilmington, DE and now in Queen Village, Philadelphia.
