About Me

During the challenges of early motherhood and life's demands, I almost abandoned my musical passion and pursuits. I even labeled myself a "former musician." Thankfully, the piano, once abandoned, became a lifeline during difficult times, proving me with solace and purpose.

My musical journey began at eight when a playmate gave me my first piano lesson. Excelling through high school and earning a Bachelor of Music from James Madison University, I discovered my calling as a piano teacher, focusing on instilling confidence and inner growth in my students.


After dedicating time to raising and homeschooling my six children and setting aside my music career, I returned to teaching full-time, adapting my methods to virtual platforms during the pandemic in April 2020.


My personal journey led me to recommit myself to daily music practice, with the invaluable lessons of intentional practice and self-celebration becoming guiding principles in my musical pursuits.


Recognizing the universal need for mindful practicing in my adult piano students, I crafted the "Notes to Self: A Guided Mindful Practice Journal" designed to enrich musicians' journeys  with intention and celebration.

This guide reflects my mission to support adult musicians of all abilities through practice resources, community, and connection.
