My mother is a piano teacher, and I was lucky to not only learn how to play at a young age, but also to have a bird's eye view of her pedagogy every day growing up.  In my professional career, coaching for other studios has opened me up to an enormous amount of new repertoire and teaching tools.  Collaborating has also helped me to understand the music I sing and teach in new ways.
