I love mentoring students.  The work I do isn't just about music, learning an instrument,  getting to a goal, or whatever.  It's about learning the skills that will help you succeed in life.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

When I'm working with a new student,  my first priority is to find out where the student is in the process of learning the instrument chosen.  After learning what I need to know, I develop an individualized plan based on the students want and needs to get that student, successfully to his/her goal.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have a Bachelor's in Instrumental Music Education  from Missouri State University in Springfield,  MO.  I have been in the classroom and studio for 12+ years and have mentored students,  on a variety of instruments, successfully to their goals consistently. 

I, in my private time, have played the flute and piccolo for 27 years.  Ive performed with the FSSL's adult flute choir, Hermann City Band, East Cental College Community Band, and Manchester Community Band in Missouri and Nothern Colorado Community Band as well as the Loveland Community Band.

How did you get started teaching?

I knew my senior year of high school that I wanted to study music in some way.  I found more into college, that I wanted to get into Music Education and excelled.  When I started teach in the public schools, I found pretty quickly that my forte was in the lesson studio, working with students individually.  This is where I excel and have the most impact.

What types of students have you worked with?

I've worked with students from ages 3-89 on a variety of instruments.   These students come from varied backgrounds and varied level of experience.   

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

The last recital we had was a lot of fun.  Everyone got a chance to perform their music and then we had punch and cookies at the end.  Everyone performing wore leis.

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

Make sure that whomever you're hiring aligns with your personality and what you want to achieve.

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

What are your goals/plans?

What is your level on the instrument you're playing?

Where are you wanting to have your lessons, in a studio, online, at your home?
