I am originally from the United States, and currently live in the Islington area of London with my husband. I hold a Master’s Degree in classical piano performance from New York City’s prestigious Manhattan School of Music, where I studied with Dr. Joanne Polk. During my time in graduate school, I performed twice in the Manhattan School of Music Chamber Music Festival, working with fellow pianists and other instrumentalists. I also entered the school’s concerto competition and accompanied my colleagues in it. After graduation, I left New York City to continue my performing and teaching career in the Philadelphia area. In pursuing further post-university study, I’ve been fortunate to enjoy the great privilege of working with Mike Garson, who was David Bowie’s pianist for many years.
