About Me

I started out as an instrumentalist-- secondary band teacher for a year. I got my master's with an emphasis in early childhood music and taught parent/child and Kindermusik classes for years, as I raised my children. 8 years ago, I was introduced to Kodaly music and have been teaching as a full time music specialist ever since.

I teach elementary music K-6, along with the district Behavior unit, housed at my school. It is a Title One school.

I have a wonderful husband of 31 years and 3 grown children.

Although I have a tiny music room and a CRAZY schedule, I love seeing the difference I can make in the lives of my students.

  1. Hello,

    I just had the pleasure of reading your Blog. You are a great inspiration, and I would love to follow you on email. I have sent my address. I am also a music education specialist. I teach grades one through six for a private school system. I also have a Recorder Consort and a choir. I was delighted to see that we are using some of the same materials and find ourselves creating other things to make it work!

    Good Luck to you in this school year!

  2. Can I ask where you were introduced to Kodaly? I went to BYU and did one summer at Intermuse. What I've read of your material looks very similar to what I learned there.

  3. I got my master's degree years ago but didn't learn about Kodaly until I went to Intermuse about 8 years ago with good Dr Jaccard!
