About me: “ How Do You Keep the Music Playing …how do you make it last”? Music has always been an important part of my life from the time I started humming as a toddler to violin lessons at the age of 10 to now teaching music in my own “dream- come –true” home studio.

Music has opened many doors for me- playing and singing in high school, being part of a string quartet ( performing on the radio and once on TV), traveling with the college choir, and singing as part of the college varsity trio. I even got to sing on stage at Carnegie Hall and play on Leonard Bernstein’s private piano. I was a music major for three years performing recitals in both violin and piano. After graduation from college with a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education, I taught regular curriculum for two years in the 5th grade. After my sons were born, I substituted in every elementary grade and then began teaching piano in my home .

Through the years I have attended Francis Clark seminars and workshops and continue to do so.  I had the privilege of attending the New School for Music Study in Princeton New Jersey, a leader in piano education; where for three years I was trained in keyboard pedagogy (how to teach).  Louise Goss supervised my teaching after lesson plans were prepared. I taught class lessons of 8 to10 children as well as private and began to really work on my own piano skills and performance with the best of the best piano teachers including concert pianist, Martha Braden

Sanford Jones, a leading authority, prepared me to teach Montessori music which I did in private schools for several years, grades 1 through 6.

I attended Edwin Gordon workshops on audiation, rhythm and tonal aptitudes. He observed my teaching in my studio and called me “an elegant teacher”.

Many students have been prepared by me for auditions for college entrance requirements. Some have been so well prepared, that they were able to test out of piano courses.

It is such joy watching my students gain concentration, coordination, and confidence as they become more and more creative and become fine musicians right before my eyes.

GOAL; Everyone who leaves my studio, leaves loving music and is prepared to be a professional musician or just enjoy playing for his or her own enjoyment……and therefore we “Keep the Music Playing”……………
