If you are interested in starting private lessons, please take a moment to click the "lessons" link above, as this is where you will find information regarding my rates, teaching philosophy, and my expectations of every student. It is incredibly important that both the parent and the student understand this information before we start lessons. Also, if you visit the "bio" page, you will find my resume, long bio, performing credits, and professional affiliations.

I have recently done a lot of updating, and I can honestly say that the site is now 99.9% complete. It just took short of a year to work out all of the kinks. If you visit the "media" page, you will notice that there are five playing samples that are new to the page. I am in the process of recording a bunch of things, and as soon as I finish each one, I will post them on the site. The composition page now reflects the pieces that are complete or are reasonably close to completion. Be sure to roll over each piece, as some have links to PDF samples of the score, and recordings. Finally, I have updated all of the document links to reflect this year's rates. As always, if you have any questions please feel free to contact me via the contact link on the "contact & booking" page.
