I have been teaching in Charlottesville for over ten years, since 2007, and hold a Bachelor's and Master's Degree in music. For piano I have studied with Eric Street, Marvin Blickenstaff, and Anthony diBonaventura, and for music composition I have studied with Philip Magnuson and Samuel Headrick. I love my job. I accept all ages, and teach classical piano, beginner jazz/blues, music composition, and music theory.  My guiding principle in teaching is for all of my students to love music, and love the piano. That being said, I believe in developing a curriculum for each student that blends all the essential foundations of music while at the same time allowing the student to explore the artistry of music. To do this, I utilize a wide variety of curricula for each student depending on their individual goals and needs.
