The area of Music Education is indeed the most fulfilling teaching experience to me. In general, I think back on my music classes and experienced the greatest joy imaginable because of giving insight to students and imparting a vision of musical excellence. Starting with fundamentals and rudimentary methods of teaching, encompassed with love, trust, and virtue imparted to the student, did, spark the greatest student-teacher relationships. To give a student liberty to pursue their dreams while undergoing their levels of abilities, accomplishments and development, is the ultimate achievement and desire of my heart. I currently hold a B.S. Degree in Music Education. Also, I held first chair flute in the 590th Air Force Band of the East, McGuire Air Force Base, New Jersey.

I will guide your child in such a personable/friendly manner; yet will not loose focus on their abilities, development and accomplishments. Lessons are fun and relaxing!...Never rigid!...Lots of smiles! :) My curriculum is; Bastien Piano Basics, Piano Adventures/Progressive Method for Young Beginners.

Ms. Bonnie is a great teacher. My daughter and I enjoy taking lessons from her. In fact, my other daughter is going to start voice lessons with her.
Bonnie is a wonderful teacher!!!
Ms. Bonnie has helped our daughter learn to play the flute. We have noticed a drastic change in our daughterâs skill since starting lessons. Ms. Bonnie is a pleasant teacher and is enthusiastic with her teaching techniques. Our daughter looks forward to her weekly lessons with Ms. Bonnie. We love the convenience of home lessons. Highly recommend Ms. Bonnie.
