Who I am
I was born in Oakland, California and have been living in Germany
for twenty years. I took my first piano lessons at the age of six. It was my love of
this instrument which impelled me to study music. I received a Bachelor's degree from
the University of Idaho and a Master's degree from the University of Iowa and finished
my studies in Freiburg im Breisgau. As a concert pianist I have performed in
international festivals such as, the Lucero Festival in Paris, the Zagreb Biennale,
Frankfurt Fest and the Frankfurter Festwochen.
I began teaching as a college student. Piano pedagogy was a major
part of my curriculum. My years of experience teaching both children and adults
guarantee qualified instruction. Here in Germany I have taught at music schools in
Baden-Wuerttemberg and in Hessen and have given many workshops and master classes at
universities and "Musikhochschulen" in Germany, the USA, France and Israel.
