    Introduction
    Hello! I am a gig harbor local, born and raised. I am very passionate about music and am always ecited about hearing from potential students. I offer in-home piano, Theory and Music Composition lessons.

    My Teaching Background
    I have been teaching piano locally for over four years. I am currently a part time student, studying piano performance with Dr.Tanya Stambuk, and studying music Composition with composer Dr. Greg Youtz.
    In 2013 a was awarded the outstanding honor of studying with composer Dr. Samuel Jones (the composer in residence of the Seattle Symphony 1997-2013) as well as having one of my compositions (a string quartet 'Harmony Of Bells') performed by Seattle Symphony musicians in a chamber concert at benaroya hall in Seattle WA.

    I am currently a member of WSMTA and MTNA.
    (Washington State Music Teachers Association)
    (Music Teachers National Association)

    My Teaching Philosophy
    I Believe that the quality of lessons is of the utmost importance and I am always looking for opportunities to become a better musician and teacher. Of course, i love to work with hard working, talented students; however, i started out my musical education (as a child) without much enthusiasm and now i absolutely love it! So i understand that sometime that is something to work towards.

    I teach beginner through intermediate levels, child and adult lessons.
