Hi there! I’m in the process of updating. See below for fun facts about me, and check back in… well, who knows how long this will take.

But do check back. 🙂

I am a pianist, clarinetist and teacher in New York City.

I am a Dalcroze Eurhythmics teacher. Not sure what that is? Click here to find out more.

My latest group is called Loco Motors. We are just getting started, but click here and here for a taste!

Here are some recent videos from my work at Stony Brook University. The playlist includes solo and ensemble performances of both original material and traditional jazz standards.

At various times I’ve written about my teaching. You can explore by clicking on the blog in the menu above, or checking out a tag.
