Miss Ena is always singing!
From an early age, I have been participating in music activities, such as choir as well as various musicals like 'Oliver' and 'The Sound of Music'. As music has always been one of my best friends. Like water, I enjoy drinking from the wellspring of muse and melody.
I enjoy music most when it is shared with the natural joy of children. I have an extensive background of teaching private voice, piano and guitar to children. It's the best job in the world, getting to watch a child grow through the magic of music! I received my Kindermusik license in Summer 2005. After working with Dana Harris, formerly of 'Dana's School of Music', Dana thought I would be a perfect Kindermusik teacher.
My education is both experience and university based. In 2003, I graduated from Clark College with a 3.7 gpa. During my two and a half years at Clark, I studied voice with April Brookins Duvic. I, then moved on to Portland State University. During my two years at PSU, I studied voice with Margaret Daane and piano with Connie Titterington. I also attended Marylhurst University working towards my BA in voice performance. I am now taking a break from school to work on some fundamental musical training. I study voice with Pollyanna Hancock Moody and studied piano with John Haek. I have done my best work at Marylhurst and plan to return in fall 2008.
My experience ranges from childhood productions to improv comedy groups. It is the joy of music that I shared with my late mother that built such a lifelong foundation. Singing and sharing with mom gave me some great tools for a successful life, but most importantly, it created an unbreakable bond between her and I and myself and music.
Piano, Music Performance, Music Theory, Songwriting
My love of music began at a very early age. By age five, I was improvising at the piano, and I started recording my jam sessions when I was twelve. Throughout middle and high school, I sang in a choir, and upon my graduation in 2000 from Rio Rancho High at the top of my class, New Mexico State University admitted me into its music department with a generous choral scholarship.
I studied voice from 2000 until 2005 under a variety of qualified professors. I won a NATS competition in 2003. My senior vocal recital in January 2005 included two arias, art songs in German and French, some Gilbert and Sullivan, and a few show tunes.
My major was not in voice, however, but in composition. I learned the fundamentals of orchestration both through coursework, and by studying Rimsky-Korsakov's treatise. I spent considerable time analyzing the stylistic qualities of the composers who moved me most: Bach, Mozart, Schubert, Brahms, and Dvorak. I continued to jam at the piano about an hour a day throughout college, developing an intimate understanding of chordal relationships and progressions. I began improvising counterpoint in the Renaissance and Baroque styles, later developing some of my dabblings into full-fledged compositions. By the time I graduated in 2005 with the highest GPA of my graduating class, I had completed a symphony, which I am presently arranging for band at the behest of Dr. John Richards, conductor of the Metropolitan Youth Symphonic Band.
I believe that fluency with a variety of music languages is key to developing a truly original sound. Since I graduated, I have explored jazz, funk, and ragtime, and deeply enjoy improvising in these new styles. I even played in a punk rock band for a few months; not really my cup of tea, but it was quite an experience!
My Philosophy of Music
Music, more so than any other expressive medium, has the power to affect us emotionally. Music leads us to transcend ourselves. Through its influence, we might be uplifted to joyous elation, or moved to tears of sorrow. This magical quality explains why babies instinctively cry, and why all humans react emotionally to that noise.
Visual images-- including words on paper-- can reach us emotionally, but not to this extent. Imagine reading a powerful essay. Now imagine a gifted orator reading that essay dramatically. Which captivates you more? The orator makes music of words. Try watching a movie with the sound muted. It loses most of its vitality, and much of what it retains is an artifact of your imagining the sounds.
Music is about reaching people on an emotional level. So long as you can reach others using sound, and you reciprocate by letting the sounds of others move you, then you are not only a musician, but a good musician!
Piano, Music Performance, Music Theory
I started learning piano as a child, but it was in high school that I realized I really wanted to pursue playing keyboards, because it allowed me a way to express myself. I was hooked. Later on I attended Mt. Hood Community College, played keyboards and sang in choirs and vocal jazz. After graduating on the President's List with an Associates Degree in Special Studies Music, I directed the college Gospel Ensemble for two years before working full-time at a large local church, where I was a Music Director, Worship Leader, and keyboard player. In addition to vocal and keyboard work, I enjoyed directing large and small choirs and ensembles, band directing, orchestra conducting, and arranging many styles of music. It is exciting to experience what can happen when people work together musically--the whole becomes even greater than the sum of the parts!
I've been teaching piano for 20+ years now, and I love partnering with students to help them grow musically and realize their dreams. Some of my students have gone on to be professionals or teachers, and some are playing the music they love with their friends. Others are playing in their churches or in bands, and some play simply for personal enjoyment.
If we get the opportunity to work together, you (or your child) will discover that I am patient and encouraging. My desire is to bring your musical goals into focus through education and creative participation.
What is your dream? Playing classical, rock, playing in a band, writing your own music? I'd love to help you realize that dream!

In high school I was first chair, and learned to conduct the orchestra. I attended Southwest Missouri State College in Springfield Missouri. I created my own string quartet while studying there. I studied Violin under Mr. Harold King, who was a good friend of Jascha Heifetz and was his roommate in Chicago where they studied music together. I have studied Violin and Piano with many other instructors, including Tony Bennet and Peggy Lee's recording pianist. I studied modern and jazz piano with Paul Horn's Jazz Group. I was vocal coach for 3 years for the Pasadena, California Ambassador choir.I have taught for approx. 50 years privately and in various colleges and schools.

I started learning the piano when I was in the first grade. When I started fourth grade, I started learning the trumpet. I continued both instruments through high school and loved music! It gave me a way to express myself. I performed with jazz band, wind ensemble and orchestra with both instruments. I kept performing through college and earned my Bachelor of Music Education. After college, I taught middle school band, high school band, and also private piano and trumpet lessons. I've recently moved to Happy Valley, Oregon and I'm excited to share my love of music with you!
