Upon graduation, in 1997, I taught in the public school system as a long-term substitute teacher. 
I did enjoy this experience, but discovered that I really did prefer to teach in a private 
studio, as I had originally planned to do. 


I began my studio in earnest and soon had between 30 and 40 piano students. On average, I have 35-40 students per week coming to lessons.  I teach a variety of levels and ages.  I have had students ranging in age from 3 years old to retirement age--from beginners to advanced players!

I have been teaching for 26 years.


Though classical music is a strong passion, I have also been a church musician for 18 years. In addition, I am currently the keyboard player for the band “Unknown Hour” and a studio musician for Baked Beans Recording Studio. I am also the pianist for the Lakes Region Home School Choral Class. I enjoy composing my own arrangements and compositions and have self-published several books of original music.  I have recorded 4 full length CD’s of music. 

I am a member of the Maine Music Teachers' Association and have attended as well as helped

with the many events they sponsor.
