I completed my undergrad in Jazz and Pop Piano performance in 2017, and I've been playing professionally as a jazz/pop pianist since then. Currently I am in school to earn my Masters degree in classical piano performance. As a teacher I am versatile, flexible, and equipped to assist my students with any goals they have. Lessons are currently online, allowing students to record the lessons and access them later, essentially being able to take the lesson as many times as they want. Get in touch with me to meet for a free 30 minutes before booking lessons to see if we'd be a good fit.
