Welcome! I have been teaching piano in Northern VA for over 30 years and I dearly love what I do.  Being a piano teacher gives me the fun and privilege of watching a student grow from barely being able to move fingers on the keys to playing a Bach Minuet and much more.

In my private studio, located in Annandale VA, I provide instruction in classical and contemporary styles, sight reading, technique, and theory.

I participate in The Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music and the Royal Conservatory programs, as well as the many exams, festivals and competitions in the local Northern Virginia area.

With positive reinforcement and enthusiasm, I seek to help students connect with music, find their own voice, and express themselves. Providing music instruction for your child or for yourself opens up the brain and the intellect to a whole new world of exploration and delight.

Having music in life warms the soul and expresses the heart in its own unique ways.

 Music enriches lives.
