My central conviction is that enduring success requires alignment of pianistic, theoretical and aural skills that are consistent with artistic goals. My teaching is focused on the cultivation of musical excellence. Emphasis is on developing effective practice habits, self awareness, musical insight and healthy technique.
I offer specialized consultations to teachers of piano. Emphasis is on the practical and psychological challenges of artistic teaching, and the specifics of technique. I provide younger, less experienced teachers an opportunity to broaden their teaching skills and gain a strong pedagogical foundation.

Focus is on the many challenges of gaining entry to appropriate training programs, regardless of instrument or current skill level. Audition and resume preparation are essential components, as is a realistic assessment of ability and potential for long term development.
