“I feel incredibly fortunate to have had amazing teachers since I began my piano studies at the age of 5. Kathleen Vincent, Stewart Gordon, Thomas Schumacher, Rudolf Firkusny and Julian Martin each instilled in me a great love and understanding of music. Through their own shining examples, I learned to be disciplined in my practice, and ever-fascinated by the learning process. I am honored to be a part of this lineage of great musical giants, and am committed to carrying on this treasured tradition with each student I encounter.”
