Welcome!  Thank you for visiting this webpage!

I am a native of Dubuque and attended the University of Dubuque where I received my B.A. in Music Education.   I have enjoyed teaching elementary music in the Western Dubuque School District for many years.  I am a violinist with the  Dubuque Symphony Orchestra and in 2013 had the wonderful opportunity to record a 2 hour PBS TV special with Ethan Bortnick, an inspiring 10 year old musical prodigy.  I also sing with the Dubuque Chorale and have  performed concerts with  them in England,  Germany, Norway, Russia, Italy and Australia .  When in Australia we performed at the beautiful Sydney Opera House under the direction of Eric Whitacre, an original composer.  Music is a universal language!!  The Dubuque Children's Choir has performed with us in several of our concerts.  In 2013 I was very excited to sing solo at Carnegie Hall! I hope to instill the lifelong love and appreciation of music in all of my students.  I love music!  I love children!   I love teaching music to children!! 
With music everything is possible!!
Have a musical day!
