I have been teaching guitar for about ten years. Two of my students have gone on to play in bands!
Piano is my main instrument. I have been playing for nearly 44 years now. I studied piano for 9 years privately, then studied in college for four years while pursuing my music education degree. Now, I am the staff pianist for Christ United Methodist Church in Westfield, Indiana.
