Piano Instruction

Private Lessons

I offer private lessons to students of all ages, from 6 to 100!

Students enjoy playing a combination of classical and pop music, and are encouraged to play music that interests them. Music Theory, Ear Training, and Sight Reading are also an integral part of our lessons.

Students can choose between in-person lessons in my home in Pacific Grove, or online lessons via FaceTime (preferred) or Zoom. For online lessons, at a minimum, students will need a strong internet connection, and a laptop, iPad, or iPhone. For maximum video and sound quality, please contact me for optional equipment that can be used.


I have the pleasure of teaching students from the U.S., all the way to Kathmandu, Nepal!

Lessons are $50/30 minutes, $75/45 minutes, or $100/60 minutes


Students have the opportunity to perform throughout the school year at two studio recitals, multiple MTAC All-Level recitals, as well as the MTAC Annual Scholarship Audition for cash prizes.

Certificate of Merit

I am on the Board of Directors for the Music Teachers' Association of California, Monterey, and have served as Branch Chair for the Certificate of Merit Evaluations. Students who would like to participate must be registered during the month of October. For more information, please visit the MTAC website.

In order to cover all of the necessary material each week (Technique, Sight Reading, Repertoire, Theory, and Ear Training), students in Prep Level - Level 2 must have at least a 45-minute lesson; students in Level 3 and above must have a 60-minute lesson.

Trial Lessons

Prospective students are encouraged to attend a trial lesson prior to committing to a block of lessons. 

The Trial Lesson Fee is the same as a half hour lesson ($50).

For the studio's terms and conditions, please see the Policies page
