My Musical Education Background

Studied since age 5 through high school private teacher. During my Jr./Sr year of high school, I studied at Grinnell College, Grinnell, IA.

I sang, played piano, and won several times Talent Scouts of IA where I lived.  I also performed and accompanied groups in the high school music program, provided music for funerals, weddings, church services, and local gatherings. 

Two years private study with a professor, formerly director of music at Cathedral of Cöln, Germany when I lived in Pünderich am Mosel proved to be stimulating and rewarding.

Beginning in 1984, I embarked on 13 years of study at St. Catherine's in St. Paul, MN and Lakewood Community College, White Bear Lake, MN. Piano Pedagogy, music theory, music history, piano study, piano performance.  Casa de la Música was established, and incorporated as a place of learning.  I was awarded the MTNA National Certification of Teacher of Music, field of piano/theory.
