Graduate of Chestnut Hill College, Philadelphia, PA
Bachelor of Arts in Music
Magna cum laude

I started my private piano studio in my home in Pennsylvania in1989. My private studio in Apopka, Florida, has been in operation since 2001.

My students range from beginners up to beginning advanced, ages three to 70. Emphasis on music repertoire is on the classics, although beginners start with standard songs. I use the Bastien and Faber & Faber method books. I conduct piano instructions on a Steinway grand; however, I also introduce my students to the mechanics of modern technology by demonstrating the logic of popular chord progression on a Kawaii CP155 digital piano. I require the study of music theory and the use of a metronome. I prepare my beginners and young adult students to play for a piano recital once a year, participate in the Music Festival with the Federation of Music Clubs in Orlando, and the State Federation in Jacksonville and other local music festivals sponsored by the National Federation of Music Clubs (NFMC) and/or Music Teachers National Association (MTNA).

From 2001 to 2004, side by side with my private studio, I also taught private and adult group piano classes, at Seminole Community College, Community Music Program in Sanford, Florida.

I have danced ballet for ten plus years, and in 1988, I enjoyed the opportunity to play the piano for ballet classes at the Northwest Ballet Academy in Schaumburg, Illinois.

I am a member of the chamber choir (alto section) of the Church of the Annunciation in Altamonte Springs, Florida.

I am a member of both clubs mentioned above (NFMC & MTNA).
