About Me

At this stage in life, I am choosing to do those things that are most important, energizing and fun. I have always found great enjoyment performing and playing various styles of music AND come alive when guiding others to make time for music in their lives. (I have taught music privately, in public and private schools, community centers and churches for 25 years!)

Currently I enjoy playing for family dances and jam informally with friends and family.

I love gardening, dancing, travel and making a difference in people's lives.
