MY STORY......

image1

My first introduction to music and lessons was in the fourth grade where I played the clarinet in the school band.


At the age of 15, I acquired my first piano and began piano lessons. After high school, I began working in various "office jobs".   One of those jobs led me to the Training Department of the Coors Brewing Company (in Golden, Colorado), where I was given the opportunity to teach Keyboarding (typing) classes and consequently discover the joy and satisfaction of TEACHING.......I later chose to leave the corporate world and pursue my love of the piano and teaching..... and so the piano INSTRUCTION began.


A decade later,  while playing (as a volunteer) at a local hospital,  I began to write a COOKBOOK and to WRITE and RECORD my own original piano "tunes" (music without words).  To date, I have written about 70 pieces and also put together a couple of Christmas collections.  (A second edition of the cookbook is currently in progress as well).......


In 2015, I began learning how to play the CELLO....once a musical “foundation” is in place, it is much easier to venture out and learn other instruments.....and begin to truly enJOY music!.....
