Music Studies

I offer private piano study to adult beginners who wish to play the piano for pleasure. I will also teach committed trombone students from beginner level to university audition coaching. I teach improvisational music-making to beginner & professional musicians. My teaching is infused with Eastern & Western philosophy, psychology, art, and the humanities. I also offer parent-child music lessons.

I began teaching piano & trombone from my childhood home in Wind Gap in 1997. Water Street has been the home to piano, organ, trumpet, and violin teachers in Wind Gap since the early 1900s. Today my home studio is located in the same neighborhood, one block away, on Washington Street. I enjoy continuing the neighborhood’s tradition of private music teaching.
