My music experience? Bottom line: if it's in the field of music, I've probably done it!
I have accompanied for many, many classical vocalists and instrumentalists. In addition, I have played keyboards/synthesizers for rock and popular singers.
Musical Theatre is a passion of mine (my daughter is a Musical Theatre major!), and I have acted as Music Director and/or keyboard player in many musical theatre productions in California, Washington and Colorado. Most recently (June - August, 2013) I played for The Drowsy Chaperone at the Fine Arts Center, and with the Platte Valley Players in their production of The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee!
I have taught on the college level for 13 years: Intro to Music, History of Twentieth Century Music, History of Rock Music, History of Jazz, Sight Singing and Ear Training, Class Piano, Private Piano and Private Accompanying, and I am passionate about my students!
Additionally, I accompanied/coached at Cheyenne Mountain High School for 8 years.
I've worked in church music, classical music, popular/rock music and musical theatre throughout my musical life, and as a consequence, tend to teach "real world" piano skills, including a very user-friendly approach to reading and playing from chord symbols (used mainly in church music and popular music).
With my private piano students, I believe in giving a well-rounded and varied music experience to my students while fulfilling your specific music desires/goals.
I welcome ALL ages and levels! I love beginners, as well as senior citizens who want to work on a specific skill!
