Six Feet Apart is a catchy love song drawing inspiration from the current coronavirus pandemic we're in together. The lyrics refer to the difficulty of finding love during quarantines and social distancing, and begs the question: "will we ever meet each other?"


As a composer, producer and pianist, I seek to complement a visual story with music. Being adventurous and bold while having fun are

paramount to my success as an artist. 


As a piano teacher, I foster a welcoming environment for my students. With lots of encouragement and patience, I help them find courage, confidence and joy in their musical journey.
