I received my Bachelor of Music degree from the University of Iowa and my Masters of Music from the University of Colorado.  I have trained extensively with Barbara Lister-Sink and specialize in training my students in the Lister-Sink Injury Preventive Technique.  I believe every student has a hidden potential that is waiting for release.  I have helped students achieve excellence in whatever their goals may be, whether it is playing for recital, with a group, in a competition, or getting into a college music program.  I also work with injured pianists to retrain them and allow them to once again fly in musical freedom.  My ultimate goal is for each and every student develop a love of music that will last a lifetime.
