A little about me (so that you know I am a real person and not a spammer!)
I'm a concert pianist, musical director for theater productions and piano instructor at Manatee Community College and privately in my home. I have been playing the piano since the age of two and a half and my mother was my first piano teacher. At the age of seven I was accepted into the Juilliard Pre-College Division in New York City and later graduated from the Juilliard School. I have performed as a soloist in Carnegie Recital Hall and Alice Tully Hall in New York City as well as in many other concert halls across the country. I have a beautiful Yamaha Disklavier Piano in my home and have made two recordings for Yamaha: one for Yamaha's Pianosoft Plus Audio Series and one for Virtuoso Software Series (CD's that play the disklavier piano with life-like key and pedal movements as if the pianist were seated at the keyboard.) I have lived in many different parts of the United States...Bainbridge Island Washington, Lenox Massachusetts, New Milford Connecticut, Kansas City Missouri, Knoxville Tennessee and now Bradenton Florida. I look forward to making new friends on Anything Arts and keeping old ones.

Thanks - you know I wish I could play your show too! I know I gave you Lauren's number as a possible sub but I just thought of Ellen Whitman too. Do you know her? She's a reed player at MCC and she doubles. You might want to check her out as well...
Good to hear from you, and yes its been forever. I am keeping busy teaching Booker High in the dance department twice a week at and New College the other two days, and teach Pilates. My company also has been doing alot in the community as well as out of town that does not give me any time to do anything else. I have not done any other musical since Miss Saigon but I look forward to it happening in the future - when the time is right. I hope your doing well and please keep me updated on what you are doing.
