Ear Training







My travels have taken me to nearly every major continent
in the capacities of a recitalist, soloist, chamber musician, recording
artist and competitor.

I received a baccalaureate from Eastman School. While earning a doctorate from Indiana University, I coached and studied under Menahem Pressler and Rostislav Dubinsky, Leonard Hokanson, Mario Feninger, Balint Vazsonyi and Michel Block, with numerous master class participations with Pinchas Zukerman, Gyorgy Sebök, James Tocco, Sequeira Costa and Elizabeth Schwarzkopf.

As a winner of several competitions, I competed in Moscow at the prestigious Tchaikovsky Competition and was a semifinalist at both the Beethoven Klavierwettbewerb in Vienna and the Pretoria Competition in South Africa.

In 1999, I gave a guest performance at the White House in Washington, DC by invitation of President Clinton and the fifty State Governors.

In 2005 I debuted the first interactive music program to combine internet resources and multi-media at Lincoln Center, New York.

In January of 2008, I performed for the Pianoforte Foundation, Chicago. The performance featured the music of Frederic Chopin and was broadcast live on WFMT. Other radio appearances have included WQXR (New York) and WGBH (Boston).

In addition to playing all the major repertory, I consider myself a champion of contemporary works, often premiering them at convention workshops. I also enjoy jazz and composition as part of my creative output.

I reside in Naples, Florida, where I teach and perform locally as a soloist and in chamber ensembles.
