I started taking private piano lessons when I was 6 years old. I continued taking lessons until the end of high school. By then, I decided to major in music education at Colorado University in Boulder, Colorado.
My primary instrument is piano. I enjoy playing many genres of music. My favorites are jazz and easy listening.
My favorite composer is Beethoven. My favorite musicians are the great bands of the 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s.
My inspiration to teach was my years in the education field as well as my desire to pass the joy of music on to the younger generations.
I request a certain amount of time devoted to practice each week and remind them what they need to work on.
I play duets with the students and ask them to prepare 1 week in advance. I give them composer biography information. I have them do music theory homework.
I would be a pink flowering dogwood tree.
