My mom and me

“I have always played the piano. The trumpet would probably be considered my second instrument – although I practice clarinet more often. My mom was my band director since third grade. She filled me with confidence. We used to play in so many bands together I couldn’t even begin to list them. While I was in high school she encouraged me to explore all sorts of instruments like French Horn, Mellophone, Saxophone, Mallet Percussion – such as the vibraphone and xylophone, and even the recorder… then later the oboe! I sang in many choirs and acted in musical theatre as well. My mom showed me a world filled with music!”

In 2004, I began teaching piano on school campuses throughout the Northern Beaches of Sydney. As a teacher educator, maintaining this connection with the public and private school systems has been invaluable. All students are offered the opportunity to perform in school assemblies, soirees and at my Annual Music Recital.
