I am a pianist and educator who has taught and performed professionally for over 15 years. My musical expertise includes classical, jazz, rock, and pop music, as well as many others. My eclectic tastes have led me to learn to appreciate a wide range of styles. I've performed in such groups as progressive rock band Edensong (whose release "Years in the Garden of Years" is recommended by Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull), Baroque pop group of "Walk Away Renee" fame The Left Banke, as well as a wide array of jazz combos, jam bands, and a host of others. I have taught piano lessons to literally hundreds over nearly twenty years and have a deep passion for helping others achieve their goals, widening their understanding, appreciation, and capacity for personal expression.
