I am a current doctoral student at the University of Toronto in Performance teaching classical and
jazz/popular private piano lessons. I continue to teach students of all ages and experience. My previous
teaching experience has included a faculty position at the University of Idaho and a current teaching
assistantship at the University of Toronto. My own wide-ranging experience as a performer informs all
aspects of my teaching, having performed as a classical accompanist, a keyboardist for busy pop cover
bands, and my own jazz projects (see website for details). My strength is in instilling curiosity, creativity, and
musicianship through the piano, regardless of musical genre. I will travel to most locations in Central
Toronto to teach in-home. Contact me for rates! First lesson always free!
I typically teach at students' homes, but occasionally take a student at my home.
