Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent.”

— Victor Hugo

True Muse Music & Performing Arts

The True Muse Music & Performing Arts Studio is located in Rogers Park, in Chicago, IL and I am also available for in-home private lessons. I've been teaching burgeoning artists for decades and am a member of the Music Teachers National Association. I teach all ages and specialize in engaging very young (starting at 5 years) beginning piano students & serious vocal students from 13 years old and up.

I help my students find their inner muse, their own voice, no matter what style they are interested in. We learn how to read music, music theory, how to practice - in a relaxed, creative and focused atmosphere.

I love the moment when a child sees the inside of a piano for the first time, those moments of discovery, the "AHH HA!" moments. With my voice students, I especially love helping young artists find their authentic voice. I enjoy watching them grow and become more self-confident. My greatest joy is seeing them perform, knowing the work they've put in, and seeing the pride they walk away with when they hear the applause.
