I tailor the type of music and teaching pace to each individual's needs and pace. Many of my students bring in their own sheet music, or "wish list" of piano songs they want to play.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker
As of 1999 I started teaching piano privately.
During this time, I played in several wonderful church bands with the most extraordinary musicians.
I teach full time. That is my sole dedication and joy.
A little personal background:
When I was six, my mom made me take piano.I hated it and begged to quit. After finishing her required three months of lessons (I swore it was a year!), I quit. After a year, found myself pining to play the piano. To my great joy and surprise, my mom and dad said yes, and they again enrolled me in private lessons. My studies were classical, theory and the very beginnings of Boogie Woogie. After high school, I traveled to Oklahoma where I learned Music Technology, improvising at the piano, and continued my love and learning of Boogie Woogie piano. I then went to the University of Kentucky where I obtained a Masters Degree in Clinical Social Work.
