Bachelor of Music in Piano Performance, Master of Arts in Historical Musicology
I received my Bachelor of Music in Piano Performance from Furman University in 2014 where I studied with the German concert pianist David Gross. It was at this time that I discovered my love for teaching classical piano as well as my fascination with the wider history of Western Classical music and music theory. I continued my formal training at the Jacobs School of Music where I pursued a Master of Arts in Music History. I taught music appreciation and music theory at the collegiate level while continuing as a post graduate student of historical music theory, but have since returned to my roots in classical piano as a private instructor for adults and children alike.
I have over 20 years of competition and performance experience in the United States and Europe, but my focus now is training new pianists. Regardless of age, anyone can learn to play the piano well. My lessons use traditional methods to train coordination, dexterity, and musicality, as well as theoretical knowledge so that every student has a strong foundation. From there, I encourage my students to explore the vast repertoire of piano music and learn to play using the music they love.
