I am currently a Senior Common Room member of Harvard University’s Currier House where your piano lessons will take place. In recent years I have taught at New England Conservatory, Harvard University, Boston University, Wheaton College, and Longy School of Music of Bard College. Having been a resident music tutor at Currier House, I am familiar with the joys and challenges of continuing musical progress while at Harvard and will work with you to devise a practical plan that will lead to your continued musical development. I enjoy teaching all levels of students including professional.
