I’ve been passionate about the piano since 1990. I started lessons at age 8 with my teacher of 10 years, Pam Tallman (pictured with me below), who was an active member of MTAC (the Music Teacher's Association of California). I began teaching piano to my two younger sisters when I was 11 years old. I started teaching other students (outside my family) when I was 14, and continued teaching until I was 20. Pam was my mentor and lovingly nurtured my gift for teaching. When I was 17, I had the opportunity to take music composition from Martha (Marty) Ashleigh for one year, which led to a lifelong love for composing and music theory. As I went on to study music in college, I continued to take music theory from Marty, and studied piano under Dr. Stephen Thomas at California State University Stanislaus. 

Creating music together is a way of healing, a way of helping people reconnect with their minds, bodies, and souls.

Music Theory Lessons

Events

If you play a different instrument and aren't interested in piano lessons, but would like to understand the music theory behind the pieces you are playing, I'd be happy to help!

I enjoy playing for events, including accompanying vocalists and instrumentalists, as often as my schedule allows. I’ve performed at weddings, funerals, parties, and other special occasions.
