About My Teaching and Performing

I have been teaching for over 10 years in northern Virginia (NoVA) and recently moved to Barre, VT. Inspired by the teachings of Orff, Kodaly, Dalrcroze, and others my students are ages 4-adults  (socially distanced and with precautions) as well as online from our respective homes. We do recitals about twice a year, the past few have been recorded on CDs for each student due to COVID restrictions. I love teaching students of all ages, as well as other flutes like piccolo and low flutes. I am also a performer, ask about weddings or other services. If you are interested in lessons or hiring me for a performance, please email me at or using the contact form at the bottom of this page.

Private Piano Lessons

Starting February 2023

Starting at age 4 learn the piano in a fun way! We play piano, games, and do listening activities as well. You even get to take many of the games home and play at home!

Adult Music Theory 101

Wednesday evening 7:00-8:30 p.m. starting February 21

This is a class for high school students and adults to learn to read music and basic sight singing skills. Take the mystery out of music. Start reading your music and listening to it in a whole new way! Through games and engaging musical activities I will break down music into the smallest parts to help you sing and play music in a whole new way. We will sing, play percussion, and a little piano. Good voices not required, effort to aim for the right notes is! This should be really fun. I hope to see you there!

Cost for the class is $200. Financial assistance is available, just ask!

Please reach out with any questions! Let me know if you'll be requesting Barre classes or Seven Stars, Sharon classes. That helps me give you the right directions.
