About Me

It is my goal to help my students become well-rounded musicians. They may choose to become recreational players, they may choose to perform in piano performance festivals, or they may want to get ready to play in a jazz combo. I can prepare them for any of these, while making sure they have a good foundation in music theory and history.

In addition to weekly lessons and occasional Performance Festivals, I offer my students frequent evening Performances Classes at no extra charge. I also hold a Christmas Recital and End of Year Recital each year.

Additional performance opportunites through the Edmonds Music Teachers Association include Community Recitals, Adjudications, and a fun Annual Music Carnival.

My Musical Education Background

I am a Nationally Certified Teacher of Music. This is a designation I received from the Music Teachers National Association, a prestigious and well established non-profit organization that accommodates the most prestigious teachers in the nation. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Washington, where I studied Music, Education and Languages.

I belong to the Edmonds Music Teachers Association, and through this organization I keep current on piano pedagogy subjects by attending frequent teaching classes and workshops.

I am an active music student and community performer. I am the accompanist for the "FaLa Sisterhood," a local all women church choir, and have also been the pianist for a local jazz band and a substitute pianist for the Cascade Sumphony Orchestra. I play regularly for church services and weddings .

My Musical Influences

I am en eclectic person, so I appreciate and aspire to learn, perform and teach all types of music. I've trained classically for 30 years or so, but first heard music at my father's knee as he played Hank Williams and Jimmy Rogers - so I really appreciate a blues sound and a good rhythm. I also currently play and perform in an all women's Big Band called The MoodSwings, and so I have come to an acute appreciation of Jazz Standards and the Great American Songbook. My coming of age music included both Beethoven, Simon & Garfunkel, and my adolescent favorite, The Beatles.

On my music stand right now are, "I've Got Rhythm," by George Gershwin, the Chopin "Winter Wind Etude," "Don't Fear the Reaper," by Blue Oyster Cult, Chopin's "Waltz in A minor," "Hear Comes the Sun," by Lennon and McCartney, and "Linus and Lucy," by Vince Guaraldi.
