<p>I come from a very musical family of professional musicians. I began teaching in public schools in 1961 and continue today. I began playing string bass in the 5th grade and have never stopped. I have played in many orchestras, performed in the pit for so many shows, play in jazz and pop groups, R &amp; R, classical etc. You name it, I play it. I have owned my own school, K - 9 grades for over 30 years and work very well with children. All three of my children are musicians. I love helping young and older students find the love and enjoyment of performing, either as a beginner or an advanced performer. I encourage my students to also work in ensembles and to develop different musical styles. Music is a life long gift and I love bringing this gift to young and old alike.</p>
