I feel like the luckiest violin teacher alive because of the wonderful families and young students I get to teach! I am a certified Suzuki teacher and a lifelong student of music. I graduated from Brigham Young University with a Bachelor's in Secondary Music Education.
I came to Utah Valley in 2007 from Las Vegas, Nevada. I have now come full circle from the time I left Provo, in 1984. After leaving the Y I taught violin in Mesa, Arizona and played with the Mesa Symphony Orchestra for 8 seasons. We then moved our growing family to Rancho Cucamonga, California where I taught lessons and was on the faculty of the Claremont Community Music School. A move to Las Vegas brought new opportunities in the thriving music community there. Again I taught privately and took on a school program through the Nevada School of the Arts and served on the board of the Las Vegas Mormon Youth Symphony and Chorus. Now that we're back in Utah, I am heading up the string program for Provost Elementary school in the Provo School District as well as teaching privately.
I feel truly blessed to be part of the music and teaching communities everywhere I have lived. There are no better people on earth!
