I started teaching in Anchorage over 20 years ago. I love working with students of all levels and supporting their individual learning styles. I am classically trained and especially enjoy the traditional piano repertoire, but I am also happy to include other genres of music. Lessons focus on theory, ear training, scales, technique, and emphasis on a positive mindset for learning and performing.

I've been teaching piano in the Anchorage area for many years. I lean heavily on note reading, theory, teaching technique and working with the individual student on styles they enjoy. I start with children as young as Kindergarten and teach up through adults. Adults and Homeschool students have lessons in the AM and private and public school kids get afternoon time slots. I love seeing individuals learn and find their passion for music.
