Private Studio

I maintain a private studio of about 20 students, ranging in age from eight through amateur adult.  I teach through the fundamentals of classical technique with a strong emphasis on music theory and vocabulary.  I am a big supporter of each student forging their own musical path and am always happy to explore other genres including folk, pop, etc.






In-Person / Virtual

Lessons are currently taking place both in-person and virtually.  All in-person students are required to wear a mask for the entirety of their lesson.  (I do the same.)  


In-person lessons take place in my home studio in Phoenixville, PA.  Virtual lessons take place via Zoom.
