Introduction: Having over 20 years of experience has allowed me to come up with a system of teaching that works! I have a passion for creating a fun and challenging lesson environment that is tailor made with each student in mind. I attended Michigan State University as a Classical Piano Performance Major. While at MSU, I also performed with jazz bands, studied piano pedagogy, and completed K-12 music education classes. During this time I gained valuable information for the piano teaching methods that I use today. After getting married in 2000, I transferred to Wayne state University in Detroit, MI, where I received my Bachelor of Arts Degree in Music. I initially taught out of my home, and later opened my own private studio. I am currently the Fine Arts Director at a private school in Jacksonville. I teach Music Appreciation classes, Music Theory, Piano, Chorus, Musical Theatre, Preschool, Elementary, Middle School, and High School music classes. I also teach group and private voice and piano lessons. I teach students in any location, as my lessons are online. My students usually progress fast, within a short amount of time. The lessons incorporate achieving musicality, technique, and learning music theory, all while working to focus on your personal goals. I teach students from 3 on up, and any style of music. Students have the opportunity to participate in monthly online recitals, and they love being able to meet other students to play for them. I welcome all students, from wanting to learn to read music, to those who want to be able to play or sing the songs they hear on the radio. I recognize the potential in each one of my students, and I have a passion for sharing the gift of music with others. Since starting as a music educator in 2000, my results are a testament to the fact that my system works! We also have instructors that teach piano, guitar, and voice, and we’d love to help you meet your goals of learning music! Feel free to send a message if you have any questions.

She is a great teacher and very knowledgeable. She has helped me sing a lot better than how I was singing. I thought I knew how to sing some what before but I didn’t! Now I know how to sing a lot better within range. I still have work to do but my confidence is building each week and the lessons are recorded so I can practice during the week. It’s so much to singing that I did not know of. Thank you for being a great vocal coach !

I highly recommend Castle Music Studio. Mrs.Castle is amazing. She works great with my 16 year old son. She has an upbeat personality which keeps my son engaged. I was reluctant to do Zoom lessons to my surprise he’s focused and learned to read music notes within a month.
