I am a native Californian who was born in Los Angeles, California and at the age of 4 moved with my family to Monterey and began my first piano lessons with my mother. I graduated the local high school where I served as the high school choir accompanist and a church pianist at a local church. I received a music scholarship to our local community college and after a year, moved to Los Angeles to continue my piano studies with the well know pianist, Jacob Gimpel. I went on to live in Austin, Texas and graduated with a master of music from the University of Texas at Austin. While a graduate student, I was awarded the Kent Kennon Scholarship and served on the music faculty as a teaching assistant. I am married with two children. I have offered piano lessons in Austin since 1983. I also offer piano lessons for kids as well as adult piano lessons. I also perform on request at parities, weddings, retirement homes and special occasions.
