Lessons & Coaching

Piano Lessons

Intermediate and advanced pre-college students, as well as adults of any level, may register for virtual lessons. We will focus on learning to read music and rhythm, developing proper technique, understanding pieces in their broader historical context, and mastering theory, ear training, and sight-reading. Lessons are classically oriented, and I use a wide variety of methods.

Creativity Coaching

Creativity coaching is for everyone -- it takes many forms, and much of what we do will be guided by YOU! I truly believe you are your own best coach -- I just help with direction. We can explore:

• Starting new projects and finishing old ones

• Pursuing/monetizing a passion you've held for many years

• Finding ways to nurture your art when you're a busy parent

• Managing performance anxiety

• Beating burnout

• Building habits, systems, and setting attainable goals

• Identifying root causes of "writer's block" and procrastination

• Setting boundaries and creating space

Drawing upon decades of research and writing from Julia Cameron, Marienne Uszler, Julie Jaffee Nagel, Eric Maisel, W. Timothy Gallwey, and others, we will embark on this journey together.

Pedagogy Coaching

Do you want to define your goals as a musician and instructor? Start a music studio but don’t know where to begin? Brainstorm new ideas for your current students? Make more money more consistently? Implement better studio policies?

For over twenty years, I’ve managed successful piano studios in New York City and Tampa and would love to help you do the same! Private music teachers have many of the same concerns regarding: writing and applying policies, the conundrum of summer lessons, tuition, networking, curriculum, taxes, supplies, traveling vs. outside studio vs. home studio, virtual lessons, trial lessons, teaching theory/ear training/sight-reading in already limited time, recitals, technology, advertising, and navigating my favorite question, “Does my child need a piano?”

Let’s sit down over a virtual coffee and revitalize your studio!

Teachers of any instrument are welcome to reach out.
