Why I love to teach music: I have been passionate about music my entire life and consider myself blessed to be able to share that passion with others. Remembering vividly how I felt when I first experienced different musical styles, I enjoy leading students on their own journeys through the history of music. In teaching organ, I like to share what I have learned in my own study to help organists make music, and not just play the notes, on an instrument that often seems intimidating.
