Register Now for Online Music Lessons. I offer private lessons in Piano, Guitar, Saxophone, Clarinet, Flute, Ukulele, and more.

With the current shelter-in-place restrictions, now is the best time to begin a new instrument, to brush up on old skills, or to make significant progress on an instrument you already play. This is especially true for students who will be out of school for the foreseeable future, since they will have more time to practice.

I work with most ages, including children age four and older, and adults. Beginners are always welcome!

One of my specialties is working with flute, clarinet, and saxophone students looking to get a head start in school band/orchestra in the Fall.

I am a career musician with decades of experience as a performer and educator. I have worked with many of the major music publishers creating educational teaching materials. I have experience teaching not only classical music, but jazz, rock, folk, and pop as well.

I believe that every student is unique and deserves a custom approach. “One size does not fit all.” I use a range of teaching materials, and try to find the best method books for each student.

Online requires access to an audio/visual device (ie, smartphone, etc.), and internet.
