Musician for 31+ years

Music teacher for 24 years. Teaching since 1984 at Music Village. Lessons for ages 5 and up.

Teaching style: Classical, jazz, swing, country, worship & pop

Teaching philosophy: "Music is a gift from God, everyone should experience some form of training. Music makes us feel good about others and ourselves. From Bach to The Backstreet Boys, music can give us a feeling of self worth and self esteem that does not exist anywhere else. As a teacher, I believe it is my ministry to help each one of my students enjoy all aspects of music... 'Music is the soul's own speech'."

Musical influences: too many and varied to list

A musical quote...

"I enjoy teaching music because teaching is for me the most rewarding aspect of life. The experience of watching and guiding students in a new form of expressing themselves is just plain fun!"
