I have been a Music Educator for nearly 25 years, teaching in various settings throughout the Pacific Northwest, as well as Western Europe.  I specialize in Piano, Flute, and Vocal performance, also offering instruction in Music Theory and Composition.  As a highly trained and certified Music Therapist, I have worked in schools across Western Europe, bringing music to life within communities of special needs children and adults.  Now settled in the great Pacific Northwest, I love offering lessons to students from the surrounding communities, while also having other students throughout the United States,  who receiving instruction and expertise virtually.
