Piano Accompanist & performance Coach
FBA Solo & Ensemble Festival accompanist for middle & high school instrumentalists. I can also accompany vocalists, and performances for recitals, audition videos, vocal ensembles, and church performances.
"Before I felt moderately confident in my ability to play my solo. After, I felt it was far better than before. [The coaching session] was very helpful. The tips and pointers I received improved my performance without a doubt. 5 stars." -Flute, 10th grade, Superior Rating Feb. 2023
- I can prepare you for what the judge(s) are looking for when preparing for Solo & Ensemble.* As an adjudicator, former trumpet player, band student, and S & E participant, I stress the importance of a well prepared "audition": Easy-going execution, musicality, and being in sync with the accompanist are some of the qualities needed for a great performance and high rating.
- Prior students received Superior, Excellent ratings, and have gone on to State Festival.

"He helped with phrasing and exaggerating the dynamics. He also suggested the method of practicing sixteenth note runs slowly and varying the rhythms. We talked about picturing a scene or color when playing. I felt that he gave very helpful advice in how to make my solo sound more musical." Feb. 2023
