She and her husband, Chancy,have lived in the Des Moines area since 1981 and has been teaching and working with young children for the past 40 years.


Music for Little Mozart’s is a group piano course designed to bring out the music in every young child.  Children explore movement, singing, games, note reading, rhythm, and more. This series is a comprehensive approach to musical learning that develops singing and listening skills simultaneously with an appreciation for a variety of musical styles. The materials in the course combine to create an exciting and imaginative atmosphere both in the lesson and at home.
