For the past fourteen years, I've taught piano lessons to students of varying ages, abilities, and learning styles. My background in the elementary school general music classroom has greatly informed my philosophy of music education.

I received several awards and a Bachelor of Music in Music Education from The University of North Carolina at Greensboro in 2004. Born and raised in Charlotte, I'm proud to live here with my husband and dachshund ("wiener dog")!
