I am a member of Tidewater Music Teachers Forum, Virginia Music Teachers Association, Music Teachers National Association, National Federation of Music Clubs, and National Guild of Organists.

I teach lessons to students of all ages. Most of my students are school age. How ever adults are very welcome.

I encourage all of my students to participate in local music auditions ,competitions and recitals. I believe every person is born with rhythmic and music skills waiting to be developed.

I put great emphasis on how to learn music: Note reading, sight reading, theory, technique, etc.
