Since as long as I can remember, music has been a large part of my life. I love how it is a whole other language which requires no words. How freeing it is to express ourselves and communicate this way!
My Musical Education Background
My formal education in piano began as a child of 7 with Dr. Norman Wright in Santa Barbara, CA.
I majored in Music at the University of California Santa Barbara and Humboldt State University and was fortunate to study under the tutelage of both Dr. Frank Marks and Dr. Deborah Clasquin.
In 1990, I received my Music degree in Piano Performance. I continued to study with Deborah Clasquin until her passing in 2009. My teacher training in the Suzuki Method took place at Holy Names College between 1990 and 1995.
My experience includes 23 years of teaching at my home studio and 5 years of group and private piano instruction at Humboldt Music Academy at Humboldt State University.
