Teaching

Teaching is a daunting task and a monumental responsibility.  It is not something I take lightly.

I have been fortunate to have had the most wonderful teachers in my life – patient, caring, knowledgeable, wise – and they remain my greatest inspiration whenever I am in a position to coach or teach a student.

Due to my performance calendar, I restrict my regular teaching to the summer at the Domaine Forget International Music and Dance Academy.  I feel privileged to be able to bring students to such a beautiful and idyllic setting for music-making and I’m excited for the future of this program.

Although my repertoire encompasses solo and chamber music, my first love and primary focus in teaching is chamber music and duo sonatas.  I relish the opportunity to bring understanding to pianists and instrumentalists, to help them understand  their each other, and bridge the gap between isolated worlds.

I am available for masterclasses (in solo, chamber, collaborative work), lessons/coachings (for pianists and/or instrumentalists), and teaching residencies.  This last one is particularly exciting for me.  My most recent experience was at Wheaton College (Illinois).  I was invited to spend three-weeks at the music faculty, dividing my time between coaching instrumentalists, teaching pianists, giving masterclasses, lectures, and performing in recitals with students and faculty.  It was a totally immersive experience for everyone involved, and particularly rewarding for me.
