I'm a musician and an artist. I have a B.F.A. in piano performance, an M.A. in Reading Education and am currently working towards an M.A. in Music Education with emphasis in organ. My future goal is to obtain a doctorate in organ performance/sacred music. I've taught music and painted for 30 years. I have paintings on show at Villa Medici's in Overland Park, Kansas. I'm also an organist/pianist/singer at Red Bridge Christian Church and Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church. I work for the Music/Arts Institute© in Independence and Mobile Music Teacher's where I come to the home to teach piano/organ/beginning guitar/beginning percussion. I have contributed to music scholarships at the Music/Arts Institute© for the past ten years, through the sale of my artwork.
