Musical Beginnings:  I started playing from my sister's piano books at age 5.  Those first attempts and my love of singing were significant.  Formal 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.  My main emphasis is on teaching piano lessons but have also taught K-6 general music classes, classroom music theory for middle schoolers.  I've also 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. 

I was born with the "teacher gene" and love teaching music!  Music feeds my soul.
