Teaching since:
1990

I knew I was going to be a musician when I won a talent contest at the age of 4. Not because I was so great but because they gave me money!
Needless to say I went on to study both piano and voice and later went to college on a scholarship. I earned three music degrees; BM in Vocal Performance, BM in Music Education and an MM in Opera Performance.

I taught Vocal music, K-12 for 24 years and also have a private music studio in my home.

I have performed in music theatre, opera, night clubs and even had some Rock and Roll! If it was music I wanted to experience it and somehow pass on what I learned.

All students are unique and I consider their individuality a prize! Each one brings their own dreams and goals and God leads me to help them achieve them. I consider this a sacred trust.

I am still studying piano and voice which I believe helps me be a better teacher!

I also believe that the gifts that I have are meant to be used to help others. This is my calling and great joy!

I have observed, first-hand, as Jeanne Deaton taught various voice lessons. She is very professional, as well as effective; she is wonderfully personable and nurturing when that is called for. I can highly recommend her as an excellent voice teacher.
