I have 25+years experience teaching all ages, all levels. I have taught undergraduate students at the University of Oklahoma, where I helped music majors improve their keyboard skills.  Before that I taught at Centenary College of Louisiana, where I helped performance majors prepare for recitals and qualifying exams.  Many of my school age students (in New York City, Shreveport, Louisiana, and Norman, Oklahoma) earned superior ratings in local piano festivals.

  • I enjoy teaching students of all levels, ages 7 through adult.
  • I teach basic keyboard skills and theory. My teaching is based on traditional classical instruction and I focus on the connection between technique and musicianship.
  • I also teach/coach the following styles:  musical theatre, sacred/gospel, and pop.
  • I am a member of the Asheville Area Piano Forum and am active as both a teacher and a performer.

I live in West Asheville, NC.  I teach in-home lessons and Zoom lessons.
