I have been teaching piano and performing professionally for around 40 years.  My students learn on my 7 foot 6 inch Yamaha DC7 Disklavier concert grand piano in my spacious Ferndale studio, located near Cascadia Elementary School.

With Lee, one of my adults students (pre COVOD19)

I teach all ages (including adult piano students and teachers)  and tend to teach a more traditional method. I enjoy exposing students to various types of piano literature (from baroque, classical, romantic, modern, to jazz and church/worship music for those interested). But I also help students explore jazz, rock, improvisation, chords, and modern church styles. I am currently accepting students but have limited my lesson days to (mostly) Wednesdays, Thursday’s, Friday’s. Nearly half my students are homeschool children. I have coached and taught adults and fellow teachers as well and happy to do so.

With Audrey also a great violist
