About Me

Though my degree is in Classical music, I find beauty and value in all forms of music. I'm always eager to explore something new, whether it's taking lessons myself, watching webinars about the latest teaching techniques, or letting my students introduce me to their favorite tunes and composers. I like to push myself to learn new things out of my comfort zone - this year it's jazz lessons - so that I'll be better able to relate to my own students. Adult students are so brave! I appreciate them greatly and love helping them to fulfill their musical dreams.

My Musical Education Background

I graduated in 1993 with a Bachelor of Music degree (with a piano teaching emphasis) from Western Oregon University. I've taught private and group lessons for over 20 years. I have 20 years' experience as a church pianist/keyboardist in traditional, contemporary, and postmodern worship styles. 

In the past my studio has included Kindermusik classes and small group piano classes for young children. Over time I came to specialize in intermediate students of middle school and high school age. In addition to the basics like note-reading, scales, and technique, lessons included ensemble playing (2-6 players at once) and exploring various styles such as Jazz, Rock & World Music. Students also utilized a computer music lab for theory, ear-training, and sight-reading drills.
