About me

I grew up in a musical family, starting piano lessons at age 5. At one point my sisters and I put on a 2-piano recital. I have a BS in Music Education, and a lifetime certificate to teach in the state of Missouri. Then I discovered Musikgarten. Now I combine my two loves - music and children. I have taken over 160 hours of training in the Musikgarten curriculum, and have received the Exemplary Program award, teaching all levels of the curriculum.
My latest adventure is adding other teachers to my studio, changing the name to Jefferson City Music Academy, and offering lessons for many other instruments.

Specialties

I teach Musikgarten - music and motion classes for very young children. I teach classes for babies, toddlers, preschoolers, and early elementary.

I teach beginning piano classes for ages 7-10 using the Musikgarten method. I also teach beginning adult classes using the Musikgarten for adults method.

I also teach private piano lessons for ages 10 to adult.

Other instrumental lessons are offered at my studio, as well.

Lesson details

Musikgarten classes for young children are parent and child together. Moving into early elementary, the parents join classes for the last 10-15 minutes. This continues with beginning piano classes, which still include plenty of motion in the form of dances, drumming, and games, to enhance the well-rounded musical development.

Private lessons for older students are 30 minutes weekly. Each student learns music theory and technique along with their lessons.

I have 2 recitals each year - at Christmas time and spring time. I also encourage (but do not require) my students to enter contests and festivals.
