About Me

Music has been my passion for as long as I can remember. I began playing piano at the age of 5 and grew up in a big and very musical family. I also took clarinet lessons beginning at the age of 10 and have been singing in various choirs since elementary school.

As the oldest of 16 grandchildren I've been surrounded by children my entire life. Thanks to this environment, relating to children has come naturally to me, as has an intuitive sense of teaching.

After graduating in 2000 from Kingston High School, (in the Hudson Valley - Kingston, NY) with a music sequence I went on to attend New York University, where I earned a B.A. in Psychology, focusing on Development Psychology, specifically. After graduating, I began giving piano lessons and soon went back to school for music, realizing how much I had been missing it. After studying music education at San Francisco State University, I am currently continuing my music education studies as a graduate student at CUNY Hunter.

Constantly striving to find better ways of teaching, I set an example of excellence and determination for my students. Students sense my excitement for learning and they themselves become eager to learn. Having taught in a variety of educational settings (as detailed on my resume -see below) I have come to the conclusion that all students are capable of learning; it is the teacher's responsibility to motivate them properly so that they become excited about gaining new skills and achieving goals. Always energetic and positive, I am extremely passionate about motivating students to succeed, especially through music.

Besides teaching music and being a musician generally, other things I love to do include yoga -Anusara particularly-, crocheting, knitting and crafts in general, reading and hanging out with my cat, Hunter.
