In my 20+ years of piano education, I have been able to study with some of the world's leading professors, pedagogues, and concert pianists. This list includes my main mentors, Robert McDonald and Emanuel Ax, as well as Alexander Korsantia, Robert Levin, Stephen Hough, Vladimir Feltsman, Julia Mustonen-Dahlkvist, William Smiddy, Arie Vardi, Susan Starr, and many others. 

 

My teaching experience includes masterclasses at the University of Houston, Helsinki Conservatory, Turku Conservatory, Sonata Piano Camp (VT), and others. 

 

My extensive performance experience and long list of mentors has shaped my understanding and approach to music. I would love to pass down this knowledge to pianists of all ages who are looking to improve. 

 

My main goal is to get right to the heart of the music and encourage students to find their own voice in the crowd. The foundation of a pianist's technique is not only finger dexterity, but also the concepts of beauty of sound, touch variance, pulse control, wrist/hand/arm movements, and many other fundamental skills. I explore these concepts with my students so that they will have the necessary tools at their disposal to learn effIciently and independently.
