Instruments Taught: Piano and Voice
Taught Since (Year): 1994
Ages/Levels Taught: All ages and levels


For the past 30 years I’ve been involved in music as a teacher, performer and writer. My training is as a classical pianist and composer. As a composer and songwriter, I write music for my own performances as well as for other artists. My writing credits include Paramount Pictures and Walt Disney Records. For 10 years I was an artist on the Arizona Commission for the Arts Roster, and taught and performed in schools and communities throughout Arizona.

I grew up in New Jersey and outside of Philadelphia, where I studied with concert pianists David Sokoloff and Marian Zarzeczna. I went to school at Indiana University where I majored in piano performance and studied under Hans Boepple, a protegee of Sydney Foster, world-renowned for his technique of complete relaxation at the piano, which I now teach to all my students. I work with all ages and levels. A number of my students have gone on to become professional musicians. I particularly enjoy working with adults and beginners, as I believe it’s most important to get them started right.

Studio Location
I travel to teach in my students homes in the East Valley (Scottsdale, Tempe & Ahwatukee), and I also teach in my home in S. Scottsdale.
