I am currently a licensed Simply Music Piano Teacher. I opened my studio August 2016 after 16+ years of teaching preK-8th grade general music in public schools in Spokane, WA and Waco, TX. I started playing guitar and piano in 3rd grade, continuing piano lessons through high school and college. I taught private piano lessons to children and adults for several years when I lived in Spokane, WA.
I have a Bachelor of Music in History and Literature from Baylor University and a Master of Initial Teaching in Elementary Education from Gonzaga University. I am an active supporter of the American Orff-Schulwerk Association and have Level I & II certification.
Most of all I want to teach students who want to have fun performing and creating joyful music on the piano. Everyone, no matter their age or ability, deserves the joy of music-making! My studio is open to anyone ages 5 and up during the weekday by special appointment. I teach individual (private) lessons as well as group with pricing adjusted accordingly.
