I specialize in the Adult learner. I have 30 years of Public School teaching experience as a Choral Director and Class Piano Instructor. I wrote the curriculum for Scottsdale Unified School District for the class piano course, and trained teachers in teaching Comprehensive Musicianship, learned while studying at Columbia University in New York City.
I have a DMA from Arizona State University and a proud native of this State. My students have gone on to promote music literacy as teachers and advocates of the Arts.
I am retired from the school schedule now and have the time and passion to continue with private study in either your home or mine. Most Adults prefer twice monthly lessons which I embrace for busy working adults. I also take teenagers who have a healthy expectation and the time to practice and attend regular lessons.
She really knows how incorporate musical concepts into practical applications. She is not only an accomplished pianist but a terrific teacher!
We would discuss goals and expectations with discussion of appropriate method and practice schedule.
I have an Advance Degree (Masters plus) from ASU in Music Education. I taught for 30 years in the Mesa School system as well as the Scottsdale Dustrict. I currently perform for The Fountain Of The Sun Community Choir, Desert Heritage Church and The Arizona Girl Choir.
I normally charge $60 per hour if you travel to my studio. Depending on the distance an additional fee would be required for travel expenses.
It is my PASSION 🎶
I actually started teaching when I was 13 years old and have never stopped.
I currently specialize in the Adult learner. I prefer age 13 and up.
I took my Church Choir to Europe to perform in a Mass Choir in Salzburg. I also traveled with Fountain Of The Sun Choir members on my first ever cruise last summer!
