I love to share the gift of music any way I can - whether performing or teaching or leading worship. I am 42 now, but I knew at a young age that I wanted to be a musician and teach music - and so, music has been a constant source of joy in my life for nearly 40 years.
I started out in choirs and piano lessons very young, and then fell in love with jazz as a teenager. By the time I started college, I was performing as a professional singer and I had already starred in several high school musicals.
While continuing to perform with my renowned a cappella group, Kickshaw, I managed to finish my BA in music AND start a family in the late nineties. I had the great opportunity to study jazz piano from Marc Seales and voice form Julian Patrick while at the University of Washington. For about a decade after high school I continued to perform, teach, and study music 'full-time'. I had private voice and piano students all around the Seattle region, and I was also Jazz Choir director at Edmonds College.
For the last decade, my main music focus has been directing music for The Seattle Church of Christ. This has allowed me to foster all areas of my musical talents while also working as a professional woodworker, and raising three kids. I have also continued to gig as a pianist and vocalist with my jazz group over this last decade as well.
....It's 2017, and I now have the opportunity to resume my personal music studies to receive a Masters in Music Education. This also gives me the freedom to take on private students! I have already started teaching piano and voice students at my home studio on Bainbridge Island, Washington; that's where you come in! I hope that I will have the opportunity to share some of this life-long joyous music experience in music lessons with you... please join me, and sign up for lessons!
I enjoy teaching students of all ages. Here's what I specialize in:
- Beginning to intermediate piano
- All levels of jazz piano
- All levels and all styles of singing
- All levels of music theory
