About this pro

I am a loyal teacher.  I'm not going anywhere.  I've been teaching for 45 years.  I'm able to change course if something isn't working for a student.  I'm resourceful, unique, and dedicated.  I'm able to write music or edit it if it is not working for a student.  I'm passionate about what I do.  I offer many opportunities for students to perform if that's what they need.  I keep them interested so therefore have students that stay with me a very long time.

Teaching music is what I do, it's who I am.  I couldn't imagine doing anything else.  I put my entire being into teaching with passion, compassion, and love.
