Hi everyone,

I’m excited to announce that I am now offering Skype piano lessons!

With the digital age, it no longer matters where you live.  You can study with me even if you are half way around the world!

Who am I?

I have been studying and performing Jazz Piano for over 30 years.  Here are some of my achievements:

  • 1998 Jazz Ambassador (to India/Sri Lanka) sponsored by the US State Dept
  • Toured/Recorded w/jazz alto sax legend Lee Konitz
  • Recorded w/blues legend John Lee Hooker on Face to Face
  • Best Jazz with Vocals album from the 14th annual IMA Awards
  • John Lennon Songwriting Competition finalist
  • Best Jazz Artist honorarium in 1996 at the UW Madison

I studied with piano masters Fred Hersch, Kenny Werner, Dan Tepfer, Geoff KeezerMike Kocour and more…

After 20 years of honing my teaching skills, I have developed many finely tuned methods for teaching jazz piano including themes such as:

  • Learning how to play ‘good’ chords
  • Mastering rhythmic principles & LH/RH separation
  • Tools for learning how to improvise well
  • Scales, Patterns, Exercises and much more!

As a special promotion, I will be offering a 45 minute lesson for $55 right now.  If you are interested in learning more about Skype lessons, feel free to contact me.  Visit my CONTACT page to get in touch.
