My Studio Offers...
Both piano and voice lessons are available along with vocal coaching. Two recitals a year are presented, awards given at the spring recital. Progress reports are administered every three months. It is important that students work toward goals, therefore opportunities are given to play in the National Piano Guild Auditions, OMTA Festival, OMEA Contests, and National Federation of Music Club events, with my recommendation and parental support and approval.

I enjoy working with all ages and levels. Children are very dear to me. We have 10 children and have fostered over twenty. I also have a passion for adults. It's never too late!

Style and Methods...
I use the traditional classical approach, supplemented with students' individual preferences (sacred, jazz, pops, ect.) Various methods are selected and used dependent on the student's particular learning style and needs.


  • Pre-college: I studied piano with Juanita R. Gray (Julliard graduate and concert artist) in Garrett, Indiana. She was a marvelous teacher, worth traveling from Ohio to Indiana every-other week to study under her. Qualified, inspiring teachers are imperative for a good musical foundation. I received the Sherwood Music School Diploma and the National Piano Guild High School Diploma along with presenting two recitals. My vocal studies were with Iona De Voe in Lima, Ohio, participating in many performances and competitions.
  • College: I received a full scholarship in piano/voice from Bowling Green State University where I received a Bachelor of Music Education Degree, Summa Cum Laude. I studied piano with Artist in Residence Jerome Rose and voice with Virginia Starr. I studied piano pedagogy extensively under Kaye Moore.
  • Graduate School: I received a Master of Education Degree, Magna Cum Laude, from Kent State University and continued my piano studies with Kaye Moore (BGSU faculty member).
  • Continued Education/Performance: I'm challenged by regularly attending workshops, seminars, and college camps. I am a church and wedding ceremony musician along with participation with my students.

Work Experience...
I taught private and class piano in the BGSU Preparatory Department. I taught music for Bowling Green City Schools, Cuyahoga Falls City Schools, and Nordonia Schools. (All in Ohio) I also taught music appreciation/history and choir at Cuyahoga Community College. 32 years of piano and voice instruction out of my home studio has been a delight!
