Instruction - Classical-piano

As human beings, we have a longing to connect with what is beyond ourselves. I believe that music is one of the highest forms of art that not only helps us grow intellectually and emotionally, but also enriches us to become more compassionate and perceptive to both the external world and our inner selves. As a music teacher, my goal is to instill a lifelong curiosity and passion for the journey of music in my students, and to help them succeed in life by equipping them with the discipline that comes with playing an instrument.

My educational background includes Master of Music in Piano Performance in progress at the University of Texas, and Bachelor of Music in Piano Performance (summa cum laude) from Texas State University, where I was the winner of the concerto competition. Other achievements include the 3rd prize at the Petroff Collegiate Piano Competition and sharing the stage with Christopher O’Riley, aired on NPR’s From the Top.

Aside from going to school and teaching piano, I like to read about European history, and religion and philosophy. Prior to my music career, I served as a nurse in the U.S. Army for four years in active duty and deployed to Iraq for one year.
