Hello! I have been a music teacher forever. And I mean forever. I began taking piano lessons when I was 4 years old and teaching piano when I was 14. I have a master's degree in music education from the University of Arkansas, where I was a member of the Uarkettes and, later, taught group piano. I love teaching piano, voice and Kindermusik.
