I love sharing my knowledge on the joys of making music with my students. The disciplines that I have acquired through my music have helped me in all areas of my life, and I love the idea that I can share some of those lessons with other people. I love seeing a child's eyes light up the first time they play a song or grasp a concept. I enjoy working with adults who's life long ambition has been to learn to play an instrument, and have finally found the time for their studies.

I received my Bachelor of Music Education degree from the University of Illinois in 1974 and my Master's degree in Music Education a year later, in 1975. While at the University of Illinois, I studied piano with famed pianist Eugene List, and Piano literature with Soulima Stravinsky (Igor Stravinsky's son).
