The Dynamic Duo

Our talented instructors both hold Masters Degrees in Music Education,

as well as K-12 teaching certifications in CT & NY. 

But the love for their students is what makes the Kx2 team so special.

Hi everyone!

As a former middle and elementary school teacher, I have extensive experience working with a wide range of students of all age groups, diverse backgrounds, and varying skill levels. l am an honors graduate from the University of Connecticut, where I received my Master's in Curriculum and Instruction, along with a B.S. in Education and a B.A. in Music.

I grew up in musical theatre, having performed at Alvin Ailey Studios in NYC and Tarrytown Music Hall. I have also enjoyed music directing numerous children's theatre productions!


I have a love for songwriting. My original songs have aired on the radio, and I had the privilege of playing my music as the opening act for Bernie Williams at the Paramount Theatre. I am an actively performing musician around the tristate area, but I have also had the wonderful opportunity to sing in Germany, Italy, Austria, Switzerland, and Czech Republic.

Hi everyone!


I am an actively performing musician and educator, around the New York Tri-State local area, whose musical knowledge extends through many avenues. As a multi-instrumentalist with exceptional proficiency on upright and electric bass, piano, guitar, clarinet, trumpet, and violin, I enjoy performing in various types of venues, with musical genres ranging from classical to rock, jazz, and pop.

In addition to instruments, I have also found a passion for beatboxing! l am a graduate of the University of Connecticut, where I received my Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction. Through my experiences as a former elementary school teacher and Army National Guard bandsmen, have become a well-rounded educator. In addition to my love for music, l also enjoy cooking, learning about modern technology, and spending time with family and friends.
