Teaching: Composition and Piano
I am committed to excellence in my teaching. I work with students of all ages, and tailor my approach to fit their needs and objectives. My students often take part in contests and exams, including the NFMC Junior Composers Contest, MMTA State Composition Contest, NMTA National Composition Contest, MMTA Theory Exams, MMTA Piano Exams, MacPhail Honors Recitals, and MacPhail Crescendo Program. The students often win top prizes in the contests, and those taking the theory exam have had the top score in the state more than once.
I have designed classes and camps at MacPhail Center for Music in order to broaden composition instruction beyond the one-on-one lesson. You may visit www.macphail.org in order to view the current offerings, and to register for classes and camps.
For those who do not live in the Twin Cities, I now also offer Skype lessons.
