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!
