How did you get started teaching?

Taught a friends daughter years ago and discovered I was good at it!  When I got laid off from the tech world, I took advantage of the opportunity to teach full time. 

What types of students have you worked with?

All kinds. All ages - 3 to 78! All ethnicities. All socio-economic backgrounds. Music is a universal language! 

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

The first ever Mock Music VIRTUAL recital in April was exciting to create and produce. See it at We've done live recitals for years and they definitely have a more personal feel. Both have their pros & cons. Students get only one chance to perform for the live one. But they get multiple takes when they record video for the virtual production. 

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Make sure you connect with the instructor and are on the same page about what YOU want. Remember you are paying for a service. 

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Think about why they want to take lessons. See if that teacher can meet their needs.
