Music is heard with the ears, understood with the heart.


It is my objective to help every student  to feel this as deeply as I do. I strive to help every student develop  to his greatest potential and to help him achieve a life-long love of  music.

I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in piano  performance from the University of Minnesota, have 45 years of teaching  experience, am a member of the Rochester Area Keyboard Club, am a  certified member of the Minnesota Music Teachers Association and a  nationally certified teacher of music (NCTM) through the Music Teachers  National Association. All of the programs and contests offered by these  organizations are available to my students but not required.

I present two student recitals during the school year, one in January and one in May.
