I have a lively studio (currently over 60 students) of all ages who can't wait to come to weekly lessons at my home studio, Strings and Keys Music Studio!

My violin students thrive--the school children are developing amazing technique and a love of playing music, while my teenage students hold the top positions in their respective orchestras. My adult students, whom I required to take lessons when their children were under 5 years old, have not stopped, years later!

My piano students play ALL styles of music, as the Simply Music program immerses students in the process of PLAYING to learn, rather than reading to learn. After 30-50 songs are being played naturally and easily (only one year into lessons!) we begin a breakthrough reading music program. Composition and Improvisation are integrated from the very first lessons! Most of my piano students come by word of mouth as my students play for their friends and parents are in awe of their playing and accomplishments!
