Conveniently located in Stoneham MA. References available. Please call for more information! Helping students discover themselves and their talent is what it's all about. Watching a student's world open up and grow as they explore the world of music is something I never tire of being a part of. It is particularly rewarding to me when I can reconnect to my own passion for both music and teaching through a student's enthusiasm for the art. I have taught students form 6 to 60 so any and ALL ages or leves of ability are welcome in my studio.
