I started learning the piano when I was in the first grade. When I started fourth grade, I started learning the trumpet. I continued both instruments through high school and loved music! It gave me a way to express myself. I performed with jazz band, wind ensemble and orchestra with both instruments. I kept performing through college and earned my Bachelor of Music Education. After college, I taught middle school band, high school band, and also private piano and trumpet lessons. I've recently moved to Happy Valley, Oregon and I'm excited to share my love of music with you!
*** Lesson Details ***
I'm a very friendly music teacher. I believe that a student needs to feel comfortable so I provide that for my students of all ages so you're free to learn and ask questions. I'm thorough, patient and consistent in a way that helps you get results. After 3 months, you'll be able to read basic music and even perform in my recitals!
