I am a classically-trained guitarist who teaches popular, traditional, and classical styles to students ages five to adult. In addition, I teach music theory and keyboard theory. Students have three performance opportunities per year in conjunction with the Foothills Music Teacher Association. My studio is located adjacent to the I-70/Youngfield exit in Wheat Ridge. I look forward to teaching you soon!
I have been teaching since 1998 from Kindergarten students to retirees. Throughout my range of experience teaching undergraduate music students, elementary music classes, and running a private music studio, I most enjoy collaborating with students to help them meet their musical goals.
For a motivated senior who reads music, but has never played an instrument, her approach and plan was just right to encourage continuing
I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in music with an emphasis in classical guitar performance from Vassar College and a Master of Music degree in music theory from Florida State University. In addition, I received extensive private post-graduate instruction in classical guitar and voice.
For the past three years, I have organized a community performance event for students and teachers of the Foothills Music Teacher Association. The event takes place at a local indoor farmers and artisans market in Wheat Ridge, CO. In addition to giving students the opportunity to perform in a community-based setting, I have taken the opportunity to perform with my duo partner. Performing alongside my students has been a wonderful opportunity to share and experience music together.
