For Teachers

Workshops and Masterclasses
It is with delight that a present for teacher organizations on topics of piano repertoire, music learning, technical development, effective teaching strategies, among other topics. 

I am also pleased to work with students in  masterclasses (formal performance coaching) or in teaching demonstrations (lesson-style interaction). This can include all ages and levels of pianists.
Contact me for a complete list of current workshop topics and my availability, for online or in-person options.
Conference Presentations
I frequently present at conferences, including those of MTNA and its state affiliates,  NCKP: The Piano Conference, and the College Music Society.  
See the Activities page for current programming and samples of my work.
If you are seeking individualized assistance on your teaching, I can engage personally with you on topics of your choice. This can include guided learning about the RCM program and preparing students for exams, or on individually selected topics to help you expand your teaching studio.
