Since 2007 she performs and records with the New York Piano Quartet. She has taught at the Israeli Vocal Arts Institute in Tel Aviv for many summers and has done master classes in Japan and China. In 2006, she was invited to join the faculty of the Tanglewood Music Center where she taught for ten years.
