I have studied music in Gainesville with private piano teachers, Gainesville High School Band and Orchestra and at the University of Florida. My music education continued in California at San Jose State University, and Mission College.
I currently hold a valid teaching certificate in the state of Florida and in the state of California for elementary education and K thru 12 Music.
I was Director of Music at an elementary and middle school in “Silicon Valley” for 20 years in California. It was there I started teaching piano. I wrote, directed and performed over a hundred musicals! There was such a long waiting list for my piano class that I taught another teacher my method and helped her set up her piano instruction business. I also set up a program at the school for all classes to learn basic music skills using Suzuki keyboards in a group setting.
After moving back to Florida, I was hired at Lake City Middle School as their Choral director. As of 2012, I will be retiring from the Columbia County School District and will be opening more space for new students at the Academy.
