I’ve taught music as an elementary music teacher for grades K-5, and have also taught piano as adjunct faculty at the Belmont School of Music and Indiana University of South Bend. Oh yes, and many years of teaching private piano lessons! :) Currently I work from home and write music for production libraries, and create digital music education materials. I love creating materials for TPT because I can to combine my love of music with audio production and technology. It also allows me to put all the sounds of my instrument libraries into a digital format that kids can have utilize to learn about music.
I use the Kodaly approach to music education when working with kids in the classroom. I love to make learning a fun experience!
