To my prospective students:
I grew up in a musical family. My mother was a piano teacher, and my father, a band leader. Our musical heritage goes back several generations, and there was always music being played in our home. I have two brothers and two sisters. All five us of us have been choir directors and play one or more instruments.
I began performing at age five. Since then, I have had over 20 years' of experience as a music director of various groups, including the Auburn (CA) Chamber Choir, and Sacramento Heat (a vocal jazz octet), both of which I was the also the founder. In addition I have been a member of numerous singing groups, as well as a soloist, both in the U.S.A. and overseas. I sing baritone, plays several instruments, and do songwriting and arranging. I have taught beginning piano, voice, sightreading, music theory, and the art of performing.
