Born into a musical family, I have never stopped pursuing my dream of bringing the joy of music to as many people as possible. I began teaching piano at 15 years of age, when my piano teacher asked if I would consider being an apprentice in her studio, and I have taught students for over 50 years. I still like teaching piano, and much of the reason for that is IAKT (Interior Alaska Keyboard Teachers).

IAKT gives me the opportunity to involve my students in a variety of music-making events—from playing for the Fairbanks Pioneer Home to participating in non-competitive adjudications to special events for parents to entering a full-fledged competition. Every time an adjudicator comes to Fairbanks, I learn something new that keeps my teaching fresh.

Having earned a Bachelor of Music degree from the University of Oregon, I went on to get a double Master’s degree (in voice performance and choral conducting) and a doctorate (all but dissertation) at the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana.

I teach both piano and voice, and rehearse a variety of musical groups through my business—Opus One Music Studio.
