Piano, Voice / Honolulu


“True music education should involve the collaboration and understanding of all the fine arts. My role as a teacher should be to relate music to art, dance, and history to enrich the lives of my students in depth. Therefore, the real value of music lessons is to prepare the students for the future in making music an avocation, if not a vocation…“

Besides studying at UH, I studied music in London and at various schools in the United States. I have taught music in secondary schools and directed choirs at the high school level as well as being a church musician for many years. Presently, I teach piano at the Masaki School of Music and willing to teach voice when requested. Besides teaching and directing, I have been on the boards of HMTA, HPTA, Friends of the Royal Hawaiian Band, and community organizations. I have been the MTNA Southwest Director and national MTNA board member of MTNA.
