I've been playing piano since I was two years old and the love for music only grew as I aged. I graduated from Kean University as a piano and voice major. I have deep background in classical piano and voice. I'm an award-winning playwright and composer doing work on several plays and musicals of my own. This is my fourth year as a piano and voice teacher and I have found a deep love for teaching kids. Wherever the Lord takes me, I hope to spread the joy and wonder of music.
