My Background

From an early age I had a passion for music.  I started violin with my elementary school program when I was 9.  I convinced my parents to get me some private lessons, (I promised I would practice, and sometimes I did!).  I grew up participating in the youth symphony program and school orchestra, choir, and even marching band (a story for another time). I stuck with it through the years and went on to earn a Master of Music degree from Colorado State University.

I've got a penchant for bluegrass and folk music and a history of performing at many a mountain wedding.  One thing I enjoy most is sharing in the community music creates.   Prior to moving to Montana, I worked as Educational Programming Director at the Omaha Conservatory of Music.  Now I am focused on building my online video series and notation PDFs, while raising my two children alongside my husband in the valley of the peaceful Mission Mountains in Western Montana.  

I am an active member of the Montana State Old-Time Fiddle Association and have lots of ideas that I hope to bring to fruition to help further and preserve the art and tradition of fiddle music.  Thanks for joining me on the journey!


“The age of a woman doesn't mean a thing.  The best tunes are played on the oldest fiddles.”
