Welcome to my Music Studio where you can learn the skills you need to reach your musical dreams. It's a privilege to collaborate with students pre-school through retirees. Together we explore the satisfying process of reaching musical goals. After earning a Bachelor of Music Education, I studied Kodaly Music Education while applying the methodology in school and studio. I've helped many students thrive, and I'd love to help you do the same. I offer over 30 years performing and teaching experience, a genuine enjoyment of people, and a high standard of professional ethics.
Every student receives careful guidance and thorough preparation. I love getting to know students and tailoring instruction to make learning unfold. I have a Bachelor of Music Education degree and have taught and performed in many settings. 30+ years of experience along with constant honing of the craft insure a high quality learning opportunity.Show More
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.Show More
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 novice to very advanced. Additionally I taught private flute, theory class, and 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 and directed two concerts per year. I prepared students for solo and ensemble competition. I currently teach private lessons at DCS.Show More
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.

Please, right from Day 1, I can see that she is a woman who knows what she is doing, and with humility, teaches it to others. I am so glad to have met her.

Best piano instructor I've had. Very kind, and friendly environment in her home when I took lessons. It was a great experience learning from her!
Edna is a seasoned professional with proven experience in developing a wide range of students at varying skill levels. Her passion for music and teaching is evident, and she goes 'the extra mile' to creatively tailor her approach to each student's goals, needs, and musical preferences. She also incorporates music theory, history, and a variety of performance opportunities into her studio options. My sons have greatly enjoyed musical activities with Edna, and as a music teacher myself (now out-of-state), I highly recommend her.Show More
She is kind,patient, and prepared. She always cares on how her students are doing. She can motivate her students to do good. She is a great music teacher.
