My York County, Virginia studio services students from across the Peninsula, Southside, and Isle of Wight County. I employ a classical, traditional approach for students of all ages, beginner to early advanced, with exposure to all genres of music, including classical, jazz, popular, and other areas of interest, including church music accompaniment style. A strong focus on theory and exploration of music history is also included in weekly instruction. In addition to an annual spring recital, students have the opportunity to share the gift of music with the community through periodic recitals at local convalescent homes. My goal is to develop a level of piano proficiency in all my students that propel them to embrace a lifelong love for music.
