Why learn to play the piano with me?
I understand the importance of music in everyday life. I'm not motivated by awards and competitions. I'm in love with the practice itself. Music is a strong community-builder and I want to share my knowledge to better the community.

I was trained in classical music from a young age by many great teachers. I wrote my first composition titled "Snowfall" when I was six years old. My dad collected classical music on cassette tapes and I consumed them hungrily. I'll never forget my first listen to Prokofiev's Peter and the Wolf.

Later I studied piano performance at the University of Utah where I focused on works by living composers. I loved the experimentation and freshness of new music. While a student, I started a performance series that brought classical music into non-traditional public settings like libraries, parks and bus stations. I believed that music should be enjoyed by everyone and not limited to the concert hall.

Today my focus is on the art of songwriting. I released by first album of songs in 2016 titled "At What Point Did I Lose All Control?" which was heavily inspired by the short stories of Raymond Carver. You can also hear a little bit of Debussy's influence in there. Since the release I have performed these songs around L.A. in jazz clubs, bars and art galleries.

Being a student in my studio means having access to my musical community. I'm all about collaboration and giving my students opportunities to take their knowledge and apply it in new and interesting ways.
