Maybe it’s like this now ….
Playing the piano feels like too much of a struggle.
No matter how much you practice, you just can’t get the results you want.
Maybe you wonder if there’s some secret to it all that certain people have.
Or if you’re even capable of feeling comfortable and confident as a pianist.
But actually ….
Practicing can be much more joyful.
You can trust your body at the piano and continually find solutions to technical problems.
You can discover beauty in music that you didn’t know was there.
You can play better than you realize.
A Unique Approach to Technique
Gaining real understanding about how your body works at the piano can make all the difference. You can learn to recognize and release physical tension that has been limiting your freedom at the instrument. And when you combine this knowledge with all the work on listening, rhythmic organization, mental clarity, and heart connection, piano lessons offer a comprehensive path to expressive power in performance.
No one should feel uncomfortable playing the piano. Experiencing physical energy moving freely through your body in relationship to the piano is joyful and life-giving. And that physical pleasure, combined with the visceral experience of taking in the sounds you love as you’re playing, brings vibrancy to the music you make.
You can learn to maximize power, fluidity, and sensitivity, by using your body according to basic principles of movement and touch.

“The first time I taught online I was amazed. It was incredible to be teaching in Borneo from my studio in New York and to be able to instantly see and feel where the student was holding tension in her body, and to help her play more easily. She sounded better quickly, and I was so grateful for this fantastic technology. I still can hardly believe that I’m able to help musicians all over the world.”

Specializing in piano technique has enabled me to help many pianists recover from their injuries. Read three case histories of accomplished pianists who were able to recover from their injuries and resume playing through their work with me.
Of course, it’s best to prevent an injury from happening in the first place. By training pianists step-by-step in using their hands, arms, and body comfortably and efficiently, I help them avoid excess tension and injury and fully express the music that’s inside of them.
