Hello friends welcome to my website. I am a piano teacher in Mukilteo, Wa. I have a BA degree in Music from the University of Washington 1985. My major instrument was piano and my minor was singing. I am a grandstudent of Rosina and Josef Lhevinne Juilliard School of Music, New York. My teacher Seattle concert pianist Lois Lisez studied with these great Russian Jewish concert pianists and teachers. Their legacy was passed down to her students, myself included. Madame Lhevinne was 96 years old and semi retired at the Julliard School of Music in New York. Josef Lhevinne, her husband studied with Vasily Safonov at the Imperial Conservatory in Moscow. He settled into a life of piano concert tours and teaching at Juilliard untill his death in 1944. I have 30 years experience as a piano and/or singing teacher and professional accompanist.Some more examples of my work experiences are as follows. I was the accompanist, collaborator to the Seattle Children Ballet for 5 years. The director and choreographer was Mrs. Laura Denke. I was an accompanist in the singing studio of teacher Lee Wicker. Lee was a Northwest Regional Governor of National Association Teachers of Singing (NATS). I worked with her for 5 years. I was the church pianist for Redmond Presbyterian Church, 5 years. Al Gephart was the pastor, music director and baritone soloist there. Pastor Gephart was an excellent musician and singer with a wonderful music background and education. He sang a solo at every sermon, we did a Christian television performance together and the choir was among the best. I was accompanist to Soprano Heather Burke. We were together for three and a half years. Heather and I made 2 live CD's with our recording engineer and my present piano tuner Pavel Dimov. We performed around the Mukilteo, Everett and Seattle area in different venues. I have been an adjudicator for the Washington State Federation of Music Clubs (WSFMC) 25 years at my Alma mater the University of Washington. In 2016 I nominated my good friend and colleague Sharon Van Valin (NCTM) Piano/Composition/Theory teacher, in the Mercer Island area, to the Washington State Music Teachers Association (WSMTA) Hall of Fame. Sharon was accepted along with 2 other teachers in the Hall of Fame. I am a member of Music Teachers National Association (MTNA), Seattle Music Teachers Association (SMTA), Edmonds Music Teachers Association (EMTA) and National Association Teachers of Singing (NATS). I am accepting piano students. All ages welcome. My studio/Your Home ~ The fee and amount of time for the lessons will be negotiated at our first meeting, on the phone or by email.
