I studied piano performance under Carolyn Spindler of The Cincinnati Conservatory of Music and theater under the instruction of Glory Kissel Heyde. I have experience as a concert pianist and scholarship and performance judge. I played Eponine in the 1991 Canadian Tour of Les Miserables and accompanist for the 2012 Greater Lafayette Community production of Gilbert & Sullivan’s The Mikado. I have played the Brickyard 400 pre-race party and was invited to perform at The Indiana Governor’s Ball.
I was Praise & Worship Director for the Kentucky and Indiana United Methodist Conferences and mentor for inner-city youth from broken families living in poverty, ministering through music therapy. I accept beginning to advanced students in piano technique and performance and beginning to intermediate students in vocal technique and performance for theatrical singing. Several of my students have performed the world-renowned Carnegie Hall and community events, competitions, and recitals. I am a member at Cutlerville East Christian Reformed Church.
