Welcome Full Bio

Welcome to this page!

I maintain an active studio in Souh Pasadena, CA, where I teach privately to children from ages 3 and up as well as to adults. Lessons with me are both engaging and productive. Designed to make effective progress, improvement throughout lessons is obtained by reviewing technique (scales, exercises), cultivating musicality (repertoire analysis) and by learning how to optimize practice time. Lessons are 100% tailored to the age, abilities and attention span of the student.

As a Suzuki-trained pianist myself, I will incorporate the fundamental tenets of ear training, daily practice, proper technique, polished performance and memorization. We will also work on skills of sight-reading and knowledge of music theory and music history with students.

Students are also expected to perform regularly. Children can play in monthly "play parties" here at the South Pasadena studio, as well as in the bi-annual studio-wide recitals at the Steinway Gallery in Old Town Pasadena.

I use the Suzuki Method to teach the very young, a progressive approach that stresses listening, daily practice, and parental involvement. Please see "Resources" and "Studio Policies" on my website for more information on the method. Please visit the Suzuki Association of the Americas website (

For adult students:

The first lesson is a collaborative informational session (free of charge) in which we devise a plan for musical progress and success in the coming months. During this time, we will also choose repertoire and designate the learning materials that we will utilize.
