““Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.”” Plato


Musical Beginnings:  I started trying to play from my sister's piano books at age 5, thinking that a "1" over the note meant middle C!  I had no idea it referred to my thumb!  Well, things sounded okay for a while!  Those first attempts plus my love of singing were significant.  My studies with a teacher began at age 7.

Music Education:  I studied with Denis Moffat at Moody Bible Institute where I graduated with a degree in sacred music.  I then continued at the American Conservatory of Music earning a degree in piano performance while studying with Denis Moffat and William Browning.  I've taught piano continuously and added in K-6 general music classes, classroom music theory for middle schoolers, conducted children, high school and adult choirs, and accompanied choirs and soloists.  I currently teach privately, play in churches and accompany students for UIL competition. 

Music feeds my soul.  I was born with the "teacher gene" and love teaching music!
