Applied Instructor, Piano in Prep Division

I have been associated with Hood College since 1998 when I enrolled as a piano student in the Preparatory Music Department. After I graduated (’05), I moved to York, Pennsylvania to be closer to family and started a piano studio out of my living room. Over the years, I have taught private lessons to all ages and skill levels at Menchey Music, York College, Hood College, as well as in people’s homes. What resonates with me is that music is deeply personal. As a piano instructor, I adapt to my students’ personalities and teach everyone differently. I think about what they need from me in that moment– or, it’s all too easy to help them lose their love of the instrument.
