I am available to teach a very limited number of students. My primary interest lies in working with serious high school students who are preparing for college admission or who have other specific goals such as preparing for a competition, audition for an ensemble, etc., college students who are seeking career advice and/or coaching for graduate school admission, and adult recreational players who simply want to find ways to enjoy playing more through improvement of musical and technical skills. I will see individuals either once or twice per month depending on need and desire. NOTE: college students who wish to work with me should consult with and receive approval from their applied music professor before inquiring about work with me.
