Teaching PhilosophyJean’s passion is teaching individual piano students of all ages. She hopes that music can be a place of pleasure and confidence in life — a connection to others either as an individual musician or in collaboration with others. She believes strongly in the connection between singing skills and piano playing for soloists and collaborative pianists.
