Basic Teaching Philosophy or Special Music Interests/Specialties

I teach each student as an individual, helping them reach their greatest potential. It is important to figure about how a student learns most effectively, help them develop a sound technique, tap into their creativity, and help them express themselves in their music. My goal is to be mindful in my teaching and teach the student how to be mindful their own learning and practice.

Interests/hobbies outside of music
What do you love about Chicago?
Most memorable musical moment?

Outside of music, I love dogs and was one of the original founding members of the first official dog beach in Chicago! Some of my other activities include cycling, yoga, and entertaining friends with food from around the world.

I love the beautiful Lakefront and skyline in Chicago, especially in the summer.

My most memorable musical moments: 
Presenting a lecture/recital with my Boulanger Chamber Ensemble for a MTNA conference
A Dame Myra Hess concert broadcast live on WFMT 
Teaching Suzuki piano in London, England

Anything else we should know?

One of the notes I received from a former student really touched me.
"I cannot thank you enough for being the person to both inspire my love of music and to inspire my exploration of my love of music. It is something that will undoubtedly stay inside me forever."
