I have been a musician all my life. Throughout high school and college, I was my church's primary pianist and piano accompanist. After working hard on my piano and bassoon double major at Wichita State University and receiving the Bachelor of Music performance degree, I came up to Chicago. While working at playing music jobs and developing my craft, I continued my education first at Moody Bible Institute and then finally received my Masters in Music Performance at Roosevelt University.
Now I happily teach private lessons in piano and bassoon as I have done since 1990 at my home on Sheridan Road by the lake, in the Edgewater neighborhood.
