About

I have taught piano for 8 1/2 years and I travel to you! I have students in Cardiff, Encinitas, San Marcos, Bressi Ranch, La Costa, and Carlsbad. My traveling studio hosts 3 piano recitals a year: Halloween, Mid-Winter, and Spring. We are fortunate to use the lovely recital hall at SoCal Piano in San Marcos.  I am classically trained, but encompass pop, jazz, rock, etc. if a student is interested. I teach students to read music and to embrace the magical sounds the piano can produce. I include technique, sight playing, ear training, theory, and of course, repertoire, in my lessons. My students range in age from 6 to 72.

I am a CA attorney in good standing, but after raising twin boys, I decided  to teach piano rather than practice law. I returned to school and received a degree in Performing Arts, Piano. I continue to take pedagogy courses in order to improve my teaching skills. I am a member of the Music Teacher’s Association of California (MTAC)

I teach the CA Certificate of Merit program to those students who are interested and am also certified to teach  the Royal Conservatory of Music’s Prep and Beginner Level Program. Both programs prepare a student to sit before a judge and play memorized repertoire and technique, and to also take a music theory exam.
