Hello and Thanks for visiting.


2022 has been full of adventures, personal and professional. Apologies for not updating the website more frequently.


We are excited about our students, who are working hard and preparing for number of events this year. Their enthusiam and dedication has been inspiring, and Mrs. Ivanka and I couldn't be more proud. Our teaching schedule is currently full, but feel free to contact us to be placed on the waiting list. Check out the Academic Piano Studio website for more info about our studio. 


 Francis Wilson Playhouse is back live and in-person. We are in our 93rd season and very busy putting on shows and concerts. For more info and tickets call FWP Box Office at 727-446-1360.


I am still at Hillsborough Community College, Ybor City campus, as the music department accompanist. I enjoy teaching, but I LOVE that I get to spend time rehearsing with our students and help them become better musicians. Daily rehearsals, practicing for recitals, competitions, studio classes, and helping with music theory and sight singing. 


As you can see, I am busy and loving it. How is your year going?

An Old theatre in New York faces the wrecking ball, so a reunion of Follies girls descends for one last night in this musical drama. Ghosts of the past haunt the proceedings, causing many in attendance to reflect on the follies of the past, while questioning the future.

This blend of tuneful nostalgia, showbiz razzle dazzle and emotional regret won 7 Tony Awards, including Best Score for composer Stephen Sondheim. This Clearwater premiere is a haunting, wistful trip down memory late, at times touching, funny, beautiful and melancholy.

Winner of five Tony Awards, including Best Book and Best Original Score, The Drowsy Chaperone is a loving send-up of the Jazz Age musical. The Man in Chair appears on stage and puts on his favorite record: the cast recording of a fictitious 1928 musical, and it comes to life! Hailed by New York Magazine as “The Perfect Broadway Musical,” The Drowsy Chaperone is a masterful meta-musical, poking fun at all the tropes that characterize the musical theatre genre.
