About Me

My love of piano and singing in choirs and playing flute in band all through elementary and high school caused me to pursue music in college.

My Musical Education Background

Dr. Crandall was graduated from Eastman School of Music of the University of Rochester with a D.M.A. major in organ performance and literature and minor in music theory. At Kingsway College, Oshawa, Ontario, she taught piano to elementary children through 2nd year college students, and organ and basic musicianship for college students. She has taught general music class in public and private schools. Currently, she is Choir Director and Organist at the First Baptist Church in Medford.
Her piano method for early childhood piano is Music Moves by Marilyn Lowe. The method is a research based curriculum on how we perceive and learn music. The system is designed to develop the ear and keyboard performance skills as well as develop a life long love of music. Two students at a time are possible or a private lesson for these active sessions.
Individual instruction and tradition piano lessons using Suzuki piano method with classical music and Faber Piano Adventures are available for children through adults.
For those keyboard players who aspire to conquer the organ, the King of Instruments, her preference is the classical and the church literature.
