About

Greetings!

Welcome to the wonderful world of music!

Lifelong educator specializing in piano, choir training, music theory, and voice training wants to help you! With a strong belief in lifelong education, I have my bachelor's and master's degrees in music (focusing on voice, K-8 curriculum design, and counseling) and went on to complete my Ph.D. in Christian Psychology.  The experiences of cultivating raw talent and turning this raw talent into something "breathtaking" are my musical inspirations. These "wow moments" are what started me and keeps me in music and education. In addition, my musical inspirations combined with my Master of Arts in Teaching  K-8, and Pastoral Counseling make me an excellent choice for learning music theory and voice training, as well as counseling to individuals who wish to excel in the arts. We all know that music is therapy and therapy is music!

In addition to my training and experience, I have served in numerous capacities. Throughout my professional career, I have served as minister of music for several churches. I have taught music to individuals of all ages (children and adults), including visually impaired students, who performed their talents through recitals, musicals,and concerts. I have also sung professionally for both private and civic functions.

I am looking forward to working with you toward your musical goals and helping you to accomplish that "wow moment".

My teaching style is fun, versatile, and diverse;  simple but yet profound.  Teaching and learning methods are implemented to suit the unique individual and their needs. Excellence, dedication, and commitment is expected and required from the student. I work best with students that are super dedicated and motivated because I am super dedicated and a super motivated teacher!

I prefer to use James Bastein piano and music theory books. However, I can teach from any music book.  These books can be purchased from any music store or online. Please see  piano  syllabus for more details.
