I received a B.A. (1967) and M.A. (1969) in Piano Performance from San Francisco State University. I have taught here from the 70s to the present, except for a 6-year stint in the commercial piano performance field. I teach every level of piano class and activity classes for piano majors. For the last several years, I have also accompanied the department's large performing groups (choral, voice performance and opera). I play widely in the Bay Area, including accompanist with Masterworks Chorale of San Mateo, accompanying UC Santa Cruz operas and recitals and as member of the SF Wind Ensemble.
Focus: Piano instruction, piano accompanying, Sight reading, rudiments of music; accompanying singers and instrumentalists
