My Favorite Places to Visit

One of my favorite things is traveling to new and exciting places.  I travel quite a bit when I am touring, and I take a vacation or two with my sister every year.  I’ve traveled all over North America and Europe and can’t wait to go see more of the world.  I’ve been to Ireland, England, Scotland, Wales, France, Alaska, Cancun, Portugal, Hawaii, Italy, Greece, Mexico, the Bahamas, Puerto Rico, Saint Maarten, the Caribbean and so many places in the US!!

Intermediate Piano Music From My Collection


One of the best parts of learning piano is when you get comfortable enough to start tackling slightly harder pieces. It's fun to learn pieces that are just hard enough to be challenging but aren't super time consuming.

A Look Back at Beginnings

I started playing piano when I was about 5 years old.  I would learn to play melodies and songs I had heard by ear.  When I was 8, my parents took me to see George Winston in concert at Abravanel Hall.  I remember watching him play, watching his hands on the keyboard, and being mesmerized by everything he was doing.  I then learned to play a lot of his songs by ear by listening to his CDs over and over, and a short time later, I started writing my own songs.
