Teaches: Piano, Flute, Voice
Teaching philosophy/approach: As a teaching artist, it is my belief that every
person should have the opportunity to discover and explore his or her innate
potential as a musician through formal music education. In my opinion, the goal
of music education is not only to form an appreciation of the music of others, but
also to encourage students to shape their own unique musical identity, through
music study and positive performance opportunities.
Greatest Music Influence: Richard Thompson
When I’m not making music: I’m being mommy.
Current Music Projects: Music Director First Parish Church, Coordinator for Maine
Acoustic Festival and 317 Main Summer Camp
Favorite place in Maine: Pettengill Farm and Miyake
