Learning an instrument can be fun if you have the right teacher!
In 2015 I quit my day job in pharmacy to do what I love: teach and play piano! I now teach out of my home in Akron, with my three fluffy assistants: Casper, Mocha and Ninja (pictured, top to bottom).
I am the president elect of the Summit County chapter of the Western Reserve Music Teachers Association (WRMTA) . Being a part of this organization means I have the opportunity to continually learn and improve my teaching. It also provides my students different venues for performance.
Originally from Western New York, I’ve lived in Ohio, Iowa, and Missouri, before moving back to Ohio in 2012. My piano teachers have included Phyllis East and Mary Cobb at SUNY Fredonia, and Laura Silverman, Philip Thompson and Dr. Mayumi Kikuchi at the University of Akron.
I hold a Bachelors of Arts in piano from the University of Akron, a Bachelors in Music Performance from SUNY Fredonia in oboe and a Masters in Music Performance from BSGU in oboe.
