Do you want to be free from tension and self-doubt, and play the piano with ease, confidence and natural musical expression?

Whether you are a professional or amateur, no matter how much you practice, you might feel your piano playing doesn't match your expectations. Maybe you feel tense during practice and frustrated about how to deal with it. Perhaps you have doubts about your ability or career, or wish to perform with more confidence and wonder how to deal with stage fright.

You may have tried practicing longer, playing scales and exercises, or adjusting fingerings and hand positions. Maybe you have read books or have taken medications to ease the mind and feel more comfortable during performance. Yet despite your committed efforts, you feel your playing doesn’t quite match the standards you strive for.

If you are committed to developing your unique musical gifts, you are in the right place. It is possible to play piano with more ease and freedom, and perform with greater confidence and musical expression.

For more than 12 years I have been helping pianists achieve their music goals. As a teacher of The Art of Practicing, I help pianists develop their unique ability to play piano with more freedom, confidence, and communicative power.

Experience

Piano Teacher

I was fortunate to be born into a home with a piano, and to have my early years filled with beautiful music. I remember crawling under the piano, wedging myself in between the bench (and legs of whomever was playing) and the soundboard. I used to put my ear against the magical music box and listen for as long as someone played. Music was calling me.

I had traditional piano lessons from various local piano teachers near my suburban Detroit home. And for my senior year in college my teacher helped me get accepted to the Interlochen Arts Academy school. As a piano student at Interlochen, I studied with Michael Coonrod and developed a passion for the music of Robert Schumann and a fascination with foreign languages.

At Arizona State University I studied piano with Walter Cosand, Jan Meyer Thompson and Rayna Barroll-Aschaffenburg. Several years later and after establishing my own piano studio, I noticed something was missing from my playing. Not only was I trying harder and feeling soreness and pain in my shoulder, but I was also unhappy with the sound I was making at the piano. That's when I sought out piano teacher and author Madeline Bruser. In her book, The Art of Practicing, Madeline offered help with the very issues I was dealing with.

I began working with Madeline and she helped me completely redesign my technique and approach to piano playing. The pain in my shoulder disappeared immediately and has never returned. I learned to play with more ease, and I began producing a more beautiful, natural sound that made me fall in love with practicing all over again.

Since then, as a student (and now teacher) of The Art of Practicing, I made up my mind to spend my life helping pianists realize their unique musical potential and be free from the physical and mental limitations they may be experiencing.

Other projects I'm passionate about include serving on the board of a non-profit called the Love Yourself Project. This organization uses the fine arts to help children develop self-esteem and build a strong habit of caring for themselves.
