"I believe anyone can learn how to play the piano and enjoy achieving success with a combination of sound learning/practice strategies, relaxed piano technique and positive reinforcement. I expect commitment to lessons, practice, and communication from students and their parents while striving to provide a nurturing learning atmosphere full of growth potential on many levels."
