About Me

Details

Over the course of my career I have been privileged to work with leading singers, instrumentalists and teachers. Teaching young musicians passes on those wonderful musical traditions and inspires a new generation of pianists.

Playing piano duets with my mother is my fondest early memory of playing the piano. I studied piano for many years and played for chorus, singers, shows and instrumentalists. In conservatory I realized that collaborative music was my real love and studying piano the gateway to it. I was hooked and never looked back.

Professor of Piano and Assistant Conductor to the University Singers, The George Washington University
Music Staff, The Washington National Opera, Des Moines Metro Opera, Opera Theater of Northern Virginia and other companies
