Welcome to my Music Studio where you can begin a life long musical journey. I look forward to guiding you or your child wherever you may be on the path to making and loving music.
I provide every student with both live lesson time and careful preparation/ guidance. 30+ years of experience along with constant honing of the craft insure a high quality learning opportunity.
A beginning string class developed into an active performing group. DASSE presented several Music History Programs, Music at the Library, school demonstrations, and numerous other events. The group regularly played at the DuBois Area Student Honors Recital. In 2009 DASSE received a Pennsylvania Arts grant to present live concerts in the Tri-County area.
Fritz Piano & Organ provided teaching space in a very convenient location, our local mall.
All piano and voice majors at CSSM participated in handbell choir in which new music was learned each week for a Saturday concert. These groups ranged from raw beginners to very advanced pupils. I also taught theory and presented master classes.
I directed the band program which included beginners through high school. I conducted an excellent flute ensemble which performed at various venues. I taught classroom music and children's choir for grades K-6. I prepared students for competitions and directed two concerts per year. I currently teach private lessons at DCS.
I taught private piano lessons to children and adults.
My music duties included high school theory classes, general music K - 12, handbell choirs, and concert choirs. I also taught private lessons as needed. I presented two concerts per year and prepared students for interscholastic Fine Arts competition.
