30 years of teaching and performing music proves that I can teach and inspire anyone who loves music. Better yet, due to amazing technology and the World Wide Web, I can teach in your very own home no matter where you live! All you need is an internet connection, a Skype account and an instrument.
I love music and I love sharing it with others. Music is fun, educational, and inspirational, and my love for it is contagious.
I’ve spent most of my life learning as much as I could as fast as I could about music. I completed my Master of Music degree from the University of New Mexico in 1989 and completed 50+ hours towards a Doctorate of Musical Arts from the University of North Texas. I’ve had articles published in “Flute Talk” and “Flute Forum,” and I was the Advertising Editor for the National Flute Association's "Flutist Quarterly" for five years. I am continuing to learn, as I recently purchased "Tiny," my electric bass, and sometimes perform on it with the praise and worship team at church.
I am a teacher at heart! I have taught music lessons since the early 1980’s. Some weeks I teach 60 students-from the very young, beginning piano student, to adult students who have always wanted to take music lessons. As a graduate student, I taught at Baylor University and the University of North Texas. I got an Alternative Teachers License in Colorado so I could teach music in the public schools. Many of my students have achieved Superior ratings in music competitions and my adult flute choir was invited to perform for the National Flute Association's Annual Convention in Las Vegas, NV.
I think of myself as a professional teacher. Even after 30 years, I still enjoy the excitement and challenge new students bring. I love to inspire. My students and their parents say I have unlimited patience. I am very flexible in my teaching style, catering it to the needs of the student.
I hope you'll contact me and let me inspire you or your child(ren) with music!
