I graduated from UNT in 2005 with a bachelors in arts. My primary instrument always been piano. I maintain a large studio of around 60 students in Fort Worth. Creativity is encouraged in my studio. Many of my pupils are composers, improvisers, or competitive pianists. My interests go beyond purely teaching piano, though. I am also an active journalist, art critic, and director of various local arts groups. I believe music is more than a luxury or recreational activity. Music is a universal form of expression that gives great joy and comfort to anyone willing to open themselves to the experience.
