I've been studying piano since I was eight years old. In my teens I began singing and performing, with an emphasis on modern pop (The Beatles), jazz (Nina Simone, Bill Evans) and modern music (Phillip Glass). I've studied with Ryan Frane at the University of MN - Duluth as well as performing in their Jazz Ensemble. I play in local bands The Fontanelles and Portage, and have accompanied dozens of vocalists and musicians over the last decade. I love music and am truly dedicated to helping students of every age find a way to play the music they want to play. Every lesson includes fundamentals, theory, improvisation and listening to music.
