I am a piano teacher and a musicologist. My research and educational work is focused on the use of music improvisation as a means to express oneself as well as a creative teaching tool. I absolutely adore music, listening to it, playing it, singing, thinking about it - it plays an important role in my life. Every day music lifts me up, it has power to calm me in difficult moments and connect me to the deepest parts of my soul. I would love to share with you what I know and how I practice improvising. Being able to let go, follow the melodies that I hear in my mind and express myself through my music-making is one of the things I am most grateful for and I would love to show you thay anyone can do it too.
