About me

I am an experienced, patient and motivating teacher with over 20 years experience. I am a member of the Wiregrass Music Teachers Forum, Alabama Music Teachers Association and Music Teachers National Association. My students participate in local Sonata Festivals and Hymn Festivals and we have two music recitals per year, though no student is required to participate in those activities if that is not where their interests lie. I believe that the more students enjoy their music, the more they will practice and the more quickly they will develop into accomplished pianists. So, I work with individuals and use various methods matched to their interests and abilities. I love teaching and can honestly say that I look forward to working with my students every day. I also have experience playing for weddings and special occasions and leading music at Vacation Bible School and church conferences.

Lesson details

I teach in Enterprise and also out of my home located between Elba and Opp. Weekly 30 or 45 minute lessons. Depending on the student, we cover the music being worked on, theory, ear training, and sight-reading.

Education and Accreditation

I began playing piano at age 5 and grew up playing in Piano Guild Auditions. Though I have degrees in wildlife biology and environmental science, I have a minor in music and a secondary science teachers certification. I became a piano teacher in 1988, when I married an Army Pilot and I have settled down in the Wiregrass (Southeast AL)area. I continuously update my music education by attending music teachers conferences and workshops.
