Greetings! I am a 33 year old music composer/producer/piano teacher, living in Manhattan. I graduated from Oberlin College and later attended Berklee College of Music to pursue a professional degree in Contemporary Writing and Production. I played keyboard on a national hip hop tour (sharing the stage with the likes of Kendrick Lamar, G-Eazy, and Third Eye Blind), lived in South Korea for two years to pursue a Kpop career, and have collaborated with the likes of Baz Luhrmann, Amanda Ghost, and Scott Hoffman (Scissor Sisters).
Given the many musical experiences I’ve had with different people in different places over the years, the two main things that I’m always most drawn to, when working with students, are passion and professionalism. I’m always aware of the very subtle yet significant difference between dedicating one’s life to music and maintaining it simply as a hobby. Music is my life, first and foremost, and I believe that the care that I put into my own music is easily transferrable to the teaching context. I look forward to sharing music ideas, techniques, and skills with excited learners!
I would be happy to hear from any music students who are interested in piano lessons, songwriting/composition, music theory/ear training, or production techniques.
