About Me

I have recently moved back to Colorado. I am a native from Denver. I was in Bakersfield CA and was an active member in our local MTAC. Now I am living my dream of being back in Colo. with horses in my back yard. To make my dream complete I really want to continue teaching music which I love to do. I teach all styles and enjoy learning about new music and composers. I teach ages 7 through adults. I also teach out of a home in Loveland. I also enjoy playing at weddings and special events.

My Musical Education Background

I have a Bach. of Music from Univ. of Utah and Masters in Music from Boston University. I spent 7 summers up at Aspen Music Festival.  Since graduating I have taught and performed since 1979.  I perform locally and am the pianist at Namaqua UU Church. 
I am certified with the Music Teacher National Association (NCMT).  I also have experience with special needs children and classroom teaching. I belong to the Fort Collins MTA and encourage my students to participate in their events
