I enjoy experiencing the amazing abundance of music through listening, songwriting, performing, teaching, and creating. Playing music is the most rewarding experience in my life and I am eager to share my passion with others who want to add a beautiful talent to their lives.
As a songwriter, I enjoy writing songs when I am inspired like catching a wave and enjoying the thrilling ride. The best feeling in the world -my life long dream!
As a performer, I enjoy performing as a flute soloist for weddings. I love to perform at my church mostly on keys, but sometimes on bass or flute. I also have original songs that I perform locally. I have been a performer since I was 13.
As a music teacher, I enjoy teaching private lessons for piano, flute, guitar, bass and pennywhistle lessons to all ages and ultimately inspiring them to be songwriters. I especially enjoy children. I have been a teacher for 22 years. I have a home studio full of great students and songwriters during the week. I teach traditional Irish music classes on Sunday afternoons at the Atlanta Irish Music School. I teach Living Music From the Heart classes once a week at the Theami Montessori School. On Wednesdays night, I am the music director of my churches youth group.
As a creative, I offer an artistic music program called Living Music From the Heart: Music Curriculum with video tutorials and lesson book for parent and child- how to play the pennywhistle. I enjoy encouraging parents of young children to teach their children music in a living way.
As a Waldorf inspired mother, I enjoy the beauty of living holistically with plenty of free play, especially outside in nature. I captured our joys in song during the early years of parenting. The album is called Sweet Songs. If you enjoy singing with your young children, come and support our family by purchasing our CD and ebook for only $10, a digital download.
As a Waldorf-inspired music teacher, I have been involved with several Waldorf Homeschooling Conferences including Peach Cobblers, Waldorf Essentials and The Waldorf Connection. I have enjoyed leading the music for several seasonal festivals with Atlanta Waldorf Homeschoolers. From 2011-12, I wrote 2 songs a month for The Afterschool Enrichment books for Little Acorn Learning. In 2016, I traveled to Ohio for the Taproot Teacher Training for Waldorf Inspired Learning as the presenter for music workshops.
