BME and MME Florida State University plus 30+ hours Westminster Choir College, Shenandoah University and many conferences and workshops.
I have taught all levels from Pre-School, K-6 General Music, Jr. and Sr. High Chorus, 7 years as Youth Chorale Director, 20 years as Community Chorale Director and over 25 years in Church music; youth adult, and bell choirs. I started guitar at 45, so I know how difficult it can be for a beginner! I created a class guitar method that is visual and challenging and successful. I have over 25 years of experience teaching class piano (keyboards). All of my PowerPoints have been classroom tested and proven effective and fun.
