I am a pianist and teacher based in New York City. My performance experience includes solo piano, piano with orchestra, chamber music of all sorts and collaboration with singers. I have always enjoyed working with composers and playing their works. A serious injury in 2001 kept me off stage for a number of years but also taught me more than I could ever have imagined about the mind/body connection and healing of all kinds. Performing is now for me an even deeper and more satisfying experience than it was before. In my teaching, I promote musical excellence through solid musicianship, good posture and healthy technique, and personal growth and creativity. I believe inclusiveness and a sense of generosity and openness are crucial for the continued evolution of our great art of playing the piano.
