About Me

MISSION STATEMENT:
I BELIEVE THAT EACH AND EVERY STUDENT, NO MATTER WHAT THEIR AGE, RACE OR CREED, HAS THE NATURAL ABILITY AND RIGHT TO LEARN AND LOVE MUSIC IN A STRUCTURED, YET COMFORTABLE ATMOSPHERE.

I HAVE PROVIDED FOR THIRTY - seven YEARS (SINCE AGE 17) VOICE AND PIANO INSTRUCTION IN ALL GENRES (INCLUDING CLASSICALLY - TRAINED) FROM AGES 3-THROUGH TO THE YOUNG AT HEART, MALE AND FEMALE, WITH THE MOST AFFORDABLE TUITION. I NOW OFFER ON-LINE MUSIC LESSONS FOR THOSE WHO CANNOT ATTEND A REGULAR IN-PERSON LESSON.
NO REGISTRATION OR MATERIAL FEES ARE CHARGED PER YEAR (UNLIKE OTHER TEACHERS).
.
I OFFER AN ENVIRONMENT OF EDUCATION THAT IS FUN AND ENRICHING, NEVER SCOLDING, AND EQUIPPED WITH ALL THE NECESSARY TOOLS NEEDED TO PROPERLY LEARN THE AREA OF MUSIC THE STUDENT SO DESIRES.


MANY OF MY STUDENTS HAVE GONE ON TO PERFORM IN SUCH VENUES AS CARNEGIE HALL, OFF - BROADWAY, THE YOUNG AMERICANS, GRAND Ol' OPRY, AMERICAN IDOL, MENDELSSOHN CLUB, CBS'S "STAR SEARCH," CHICAGOLAND'S PHEASANT RUN DINNER THEATRE, NEW AMERICAN THEATRE, PEC PLAYHOUSE, STARLIGHT THEATRE, BONZI PRODUCTIONS, FLODIN PRODUCTIONS, CHRISTIAN YOUTH THEATRE, THE ROCKFORD RIVERHAWKS' GAMES, AND CHILDREN'S YOUTH THEATRE PROJECT. OTHERS HAVE TAKEN AN EDUCATIONAL ROUTE TO STUDY ON PIANO AND VOICE SCHOLARSHIPS AT SUCH COLLEGES AS UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS, COLUMBIA COLLEGE, MILLIKEN, ST. JOHN'S UNIVERSITY, UNIVERSITY OF EVANSVILLE, LSU, NIU, AND BETHEL, AND TO TEACH AT INTERLOCHEN, THE MIDWEST'S "JUILLIARD."

STUDENTS ARE INVOLVED IN FALL AND SPRING RECITALS, PERFORMING IN THE COMMUNITY, NATIONAL ENRICHMENT EXAMS, CHRISTMAS CAROLING, MUSIC SCHOLARSHIPS AND SUMMER CAMPS.

I AM A GRADUATE OF NORTHERN ILLINOIS UNIVERSITY WITH A BACHELOR'S IN MUSIC, THEATRE AND ENGLISH, AND THE MUSIKGARTEN PIANO CERTIFICATE PROGRAM, WHEATON COLLEGE. I AM ALSO A NATIONALLY-CERTIFIED MUSIC TEACHER, AND WAS NOMINATED FOR A DISNEY AMERICAN TEACHER AWARD IN 1999. I AM ALSO A FORMER PART-TIME MUSIC TEACHER AT KARNES MUSIC AND RANDEE'S MUSIC. I ALSO TAUGHT ONE YEAR ( K - 8) AT A LOCAL CHRISTIAN SCHOOL.

I AM AN ACCOMPLISHED VOCALIST/PIANIST WHO HAS BEEN ASKED TO PERFORM IN ROCKFORD FOR THE LAST 26 YEARS FOR SUCH VENUES AS THE ROCKFORD BANK AND TRUST CO. GRAND OPENING, ARTHRITIS FOUNDATION SPECIAL EVENT WITH MISS AMERICA MAJORIE JUDITH VINCENT, ROCKFORD TOP FASHION AND BRIDAL SHOWS, GRADUATION PARTIES, BIRTHDAYS, ANNIVERSARIES, WEDDINGS AND OTHER BUSINESS EVENTS. IN 1985, I PERFORMED FOR CONGRESSMAN ROBERT MICHEL AT A SPECIAL PRESENTATION, OF WHICH I WAS AWARDED A GOLD CONGRESSIONAL MEDAL IN THE PERFORMING ARTS BY HIM AND OTHER TOP OFFICIALS IN THE CAPITOL, WASHINGTON, D.C.

IF YOU OR YOUR CHILD HAVE ALWAYS BEEN INTERESTED IN LESSONS, BUT HAVE PUT OFF TRYING VOICE OR PIANO BECAUSE OF FEAR IN THE COMPATABILITY ISSUE BETWEEN TEACHER AND STUDENT, PLEASE FEEL FREE TO SET UP A FREE INTERVIEW WITH ME. I'VE NEVER HAD ANYONE NOT SIGN UP AFTER ONE!



DUE TO THE INCREASE IN STUDENTS, I HAVE EXPANDED MY BUSINESS TO EARLIER DAYTIME HOURS FOR PRESCHOOL, HOMESCHOOLED AND ADULTS.
