I started taking music lessons when I was seven years old, and I have been playing music ever since! I received my Bachelor of Music degrees from Hastings College in Hastings, Nebraska where I enjoyed studying organ performance, choral conducting, music history and music theory. I went on to graduate school where I received my Master of Music degree in Musicology from Baylor University in Waco, Texas. Following that, I moved to Colorado to continue my music education at the University of Colorado/Boulder where I earned my Master of Music degree in Choral Conducting.
I have lived in Colorado since 1987, and have worked at St. Stephen's Episcopal Church as the Music Director since that time. I am responsible for playing organ and piano for Sunday and other special services. I conduct the Adult and Youth Choirs, as well as an Adult and Youth Handbell Choirs. For the past 20 years I have been teaching private piano, organ and voice lessons, and currently have a studio of 48 students. I have also enjoyed being a licensed Kindermusik teacher in Longmont since January, 2000. I have had the pleasure of seeing many of my Kindermusik students turn into wonderful piano students over the years.
I am looking forward to many more years of teaching music to the people of the Longmont community.
