I started piano lessons at the age of four and continued through college studying with Kathryn K. Beard through high school and Mildred Milford and Dr. Miloy through college. I studied at the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music on a high school scholarship between my junior and senior year in high school and graduated from Ball State University, Muncie, IN with a Bachelors in Education. Additionally, I was trained in Kindermusik at Cal State Fullerton.
I have taught both in public and private schools and enjoy teaching young beginners. I have maintained a studio ranging between 24 and 72 students. While teaching the 72 students, I had two other teachers working with me at two Tesseract campuses.
My studio includes a Steinway piano as well as a digital keyboard/computer setup that I use to teach the students theory, ear training, rhythm and music appreciation. The children love getting together for Keyboard Klub where they perform for each other individually as well as in ensembles. We offer recitals year round using the different holidays as our theme. My goal is for the children and adults to enjoy playing the piano for their own enjoyment as well as the enjoyment of others.
