I started piano at age 4. I graduated from Wichita State University with a degree in French Horn Performance, minor in Piano Performance.

Professional Career:

  • Played third horn with the Wichita Symphony 1972-1974
  • Played second horn with the Kansas City Symphony 1983-2008
  • Cofounder of MerrieNan Melodies, an innovative approach for learning to read music by writing and composing.

I presently teach 15 area music students and give riding lessons at my farm in Baldwin City, KS.

I create performing opportunities for my students by taking them to assisted living facilities and nursing homes to play for the residents.

My sister Merrie Skaggs and I are the creators of MerrieNan Melodies, a new innovative method for learning to read music through writing and composing. Piano lessons are now accessible for Pre-Readers from the age of 3 on up to any age beginner. You can go to our web site for more information at www.merrienan.com.
