As a student, I competed in many state-wide competitions and was awarded the Arion Award for outstanding musician. As a student at Baldwin-Wallace Conservatory, I was a flute major and piano minor with a great deal of experience (continuing today) in piano accompaniment. I was proficient enough in sight reading music that voice majors asked me to accompany them at their lessons.
I have taught scores of students since 1983. Please see the list of my students' home towns above. Most recently, one of my long-time students was accepted to 5 conservatories.
Students play on my Knabe baby grand piano purchased in 2007. If you need help buying an instrument, I can help you choose one for a nominal fee. Pianos are recommended over keyboards since keyboards do much of the work for the student. I also have names of professional tuners from the area who are reasonably priced.
