Music Lessons & Coaching

Welcome to the Parkwood Music House and the Abalone Moon Music studio within. The Parkwood Music House is a cheerful, perfect setting for my music families to come to for their student's music education. The Abalone Moon Music studio in it has a neat, attractive environment with carpeting to reduce sound. Its quiet grey color helps students to be calm and focused. All of my teaching materials are within reach. It is a wonderful environment to teach and learn in. My students and families have told me they love this house!

I offer music lessons to people of all ages and skill levels throughout the Poughkeepsie, New York and Hudson Valley. I teach 5 days a week with flexibility to work with the families to make it as smooth as possible.

This quartet is from my Parkwood Music House  Chamber Music Camp this past summer. What a great group of kids! A wonderful 2 weeks of fun and learning.
