Overview

B Mus from U of U 1975. M Mus Ed from Boston U 2008. Retired Orchestra Director and teacher (grades 5 - 12) Tooele HS & Jr HS + elementary program. Former Utah State Fiddle Champion. Past affiliation with Utah Oldtime Fiddlers.
I still love helping students reach their musical potential even though I am now retired from the classroom.
I offer a personalized approach, and I am able to tailor materials to best serve an individual student's needs. I am experienced at starting beginners, and also adept with intermediate students.
For special needs students I would need someone familiar with the student's needs to attend lessons with the student.
