Personal Statement

I can easily assess the student’s abilities and determine the next steps that will yield the fastest and most effective progress. As a life long musician, I have very effective practice techniques that keep my students improving and loving their musical journey. I feel I can offer an in-depth education in music as well as the technique to become proficient in singing or violin and piano. Music is the greatest of all the art forms and I find it thrilling to show students why!

I teach in both Manhattan and northwest Connecticut. Please visit my website. Thank you.
