I taught music and movement classes in Laguna Niguel for over 30 years.  I now am focusing on specializing in piano lessons and have re-located to my home in Dana Point.  I teach beginning/intermediate piano for ages 6-adult.  By 2019 I hope to also be offering music/piano to 3-5 year olds.

The joy in sharing my love and enjoyment of music with others.
