I have taught piano/organ/keyboard for over 36 years, mostly in the students' homes. (All are taught in the students' currently.) I have had over 750 students in those 36 years, ranging from 3 to 90. I find that I am "in love" with the learning process. I have infinite patience as I see students mastering each new concept and each new piece. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree from Baptist Bible College in Springfield, Missouri and come from a music family, where my mother was the pianist and my father the organist at our local church for over 20 years. I fully believe in accentuating the positive in all my teaching. Encouragement is the "grease" that speeds up the learning process and keeps the students motivated indefinitely.
