I have been teaching private lessons in the area for more than 17 years. I have a degree from the University of Illinois, Urbana and have been actively involved with young people and music since receiving certification from the Center for Music and Young Children in Princeton, NJ, in 1999. I work with close to a hundred children (each one special!) on any given week, between instrument lessons and the Music Together classes that I lead at various locations all over Lake County. I also perform at family events for area park districts and art fairs. I am a composer of stage musicals at Citadel Theatre in Lake Forest and Theatre Building Chicago Writers Workshop, and also can also be caught gigging around the Chicago area playing jazz and rock at summer festivals, clubs and restaurants. I am a member of the National Music Teachers Association, the Illinois State Music Teachers Association, and the North Shore Music Teachers Association.
