I love teaching piano because I enjoy making music come alive for students. Music is a language and it takes time to learn, but it’s all worth it when the musical language starts to make sense to my students and they begin to make it their own. I started taking lessons as a young boy and I remember my piano teacher was always such a joy to be around — she made music fun as well as meaningful. I want to continue that legacy of making music entertaining and beautiful to my students.
I received a Bachelor’s in Piano Performance from Cincinnati Christian University and then went on to get my Master’s in Music Theory from the University of Kentucky. With over 12 years of teaching experience, I enjoy the challenge of tailoring a lesson plan to a student’s specific interests and I enjoy explaining what makes music work to all my students. I believe in diligent work, following your dreams, and laughing often.
