a little
about me

 

I grew up in the Wichita area, the oldest of 7 kids. As a very young child, I loved sitting at the piano, playing by ear, figuring out chords, and making up songs. After my parents put me in piano and violin lessons, I taught my younger siblings to sing together and play the piano, violin, viola, and cello. I played violin in the Wichita Youth Symphony through the end of high school, and taught piano and strings to many friends and neighbors during my high school years as well.

My high-school and college years were spent teaching private and group lessons, composing music, coaching ensembles, volunteering in music camps, critiquing in music festivals, and serving in the music ministry at my local church.

 

I double-majored in piano pedagogy and violin performance at Wichita State University, and hold a Bachelor of Arts in music, with a minor in psychology. 

During college, I fell in love with conducting, and conducted/taught in WSU's string institute program, and composed and directed several fully orchestrated musical dramas.

I spend my time teaching a variety of music lessons, composing, substitute teaching, and accompanying in my children's school district for choir, musicals, etc. I am also on staff as the music/choir director at my local church, and enjoy playing lots of fiddle gigs with 2 local country bands. Most of all, I love spending time with my 4 amazing children. They are my "gesamtkunstwerk". 

 

On a day off, you will find me......At salsa or two step dance class, hanging out with friends, shopping for a stinkin' cute new pair of shoes, garage saling, or at home with my kids & our 2 dogs Lola & Luna.
