Music lessons were a priority in my family. I began playing the piano as soon as I could reach the keys! My musical training began at the age of three with Suzuki violin and then with traditional piano at age five, training under Joyce Odens Goodwin. In high school, I had many other interests but knew that teaching piano was my life’s calling.

I have a Bachelor of Music degree from Bob Jones University in Piano Performance, graduating Magna Cum Laud. While in college, I studied under Alice Gingery (Taubman Institute) and David Lehman. I worked as an accompanist for private lessons, and rehearsals, recitals and competitions.

After graduation, I continued my training with the Suzuki Association of the Americas (Katherine Monsour Barley, Nightingale Chen, & Joan Krzywicki) and completed all seven levels in 2017. I have served as the co-president of the Greater Philadelphia Suzuki Association (GPSA). I have experience teaching with many different methods and with all ages of students.

Besides maintaining a thriving private studio in the Philadelphia region for the past 16 years, I am also a sought after collaborative pianist, working with many local teachers and schools.

While not teaching, I enjoy performing pieces by living composers and accompanying. My husband, Joseph, is also a Suzuki teacher and choral conductor, and we have performed several recitals together.
