Heart and Soul Music Studio
It’s free with no obligation to hire
Introduction: I admit, I'm a bit right brainer. This is a great benefit to my students because each week, I have something up my sleeve that is sure to motivate and inspire whether its through a new studio challenge, game or some exciting new music. For 7 years, I taught Musikgarten which is a music class for babies and toddlers. There's a lot you can learn from those little tikes. One being patience and how to be a listener. That's right - a teacher that listens! My experience as a Musikgarten instructor as well as my experience as a performer, instructor and being able to offer on the spot accompaniment at church has only helped me as a teacher and guide. I continue to take private music lessons for myself (been doing that for the past 25 + years!). This experience helps me see through the eyes of each student. So when I say I know what performance anxiety is like, what its like to have a lousy practice week, or a great practice week - I'm not kidding! I love the human heart, no matter the age. But I do love the kids! They are amazing and its great to help them discover what they can do. Being a music student can be lonely business sometimes. So can being a teacher. But merge the two - and you have harmony!

- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Currently, I am working towards my NCTM which is a status that qualifies me to be a Nationally Certified Teacher of Music through the Music Teachers National Association (MTNA). This a very detailed process which helps me take my teaching skills to the next level and be abreast of new ways to teach music.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?In college, I wanted to major in music but went another path. Its always been in the back of my mind. When I married, I was given the opportunity to explore this dream and make it a reality to own my music studio. Eleven years ago I started this adventure and have not looked back!
