Teaching since:

I am an educator and teacher, dedicated to helping students succeed through quality planning, curriculum, student interaction and parent communication. I have taught piano and voice for over 15 years and have worked as a solo performer and accompanist. My goal is to help students to enjoy what they are learning and to advance in their technique and performance. I take each lesson as a unique approach because each person is unique. I will always include some classical conditioning to get the basics down, but then adjust according to the student. Music should be fun and exciting.


Aug 2002 - May 2006
Western State College

I worked with the Western State choirs, concert band, symphony orchestra, and soloists to help prepare for performances. I rehearsed with all said groups and also assisted in sectionals and one-on-one work. I performed in concert, making sure to follow the conductor or soloist in all selected music pieces while helping to emphasize the group or individuals' sound.

I love to be in the mountains. We stopped here before going hiking.
