I have been a Suzuki Certified Piano teacher for 20 + years, certified thru Books 1-7 .
I have attended Suzuki workshops taught by Haruko Karaoke in Atlanta, Chatham College in Pittsburgh, Louisville, Kentucky, Philadelphia and Oberlin College.
I studied privately with Carol Lubetkin, Rita Hauck , and Bruce Anderson .
My students have been selected by audition to perform at the International Suzuki Convention held in Chicago . They received a private lesson with Haruko Kataoka and received the privilege of also performing in Master Class with Seizo Azuma and Claude Frank .
My students have participated in the World Piano Competition since 1987 and have received the Grand Gold Prize which earned them the opportunity to perform in the Winner’s Recital held at Carnegie Hall multiple times.
My students also have received top honors in the International American Protege Piano Competition, International Golden Classical Music Competition which also resulted in them performing in the WInner’s Recital at Carnegie Hall this past year ( 2017) .
I strongly believe in the Suzuki Method and incorporate it’s philosophy and repertoire in my studio on a daily basis.
I believe in making the lessons fun and enjoyable, incorporating musical games involving: Listening, Note reading, Rhythm, and Music Theory.
I believe in an early start advantage and to train the ear as early as possible which involves listening to Classical Music from infancy.
One of my favorite quotes : “What you are at 3 you will be at 100.”
