I have been teaching professionally for twenty years. I have taught privately, through the New School, and through Manhattan School or Music. I have also been part of teaching residencies such as Banff. I have given masterclasses and clinics all around the world from New York to Italy to Sri Lanka. There is nothing more gratifying to me than when I see a student who is hungry and who puts in the work and succeeds.
I have been lucky enough to have had amazing teachers all my life: most importantly Samir Chatterjee and John Riley. I try and see what is the best course of action for each student. I am spontaneous with my lessons in order to address the needs of each student. I mostly take on musicians who are professionals or who plan to be.
