    About MeContact Me
    Introduction
    As a mom, and teacher, I understand the different ways children and adults learn. People are different just as the books to learn from are different. I can teach ages from 4 and up. I can also do clarinet and bassoon up to medium advanced level, flute and sax up to intermediate level. At present I have over 30 students, from Federal Way, Fall City, Sammamish, Issaquah, Kent. Ages 4 and up.

    My Teaching Background
    I have a degree in organ performance and music history from Univ. of WI-Stevens Point. Being a member of the Woodwind Ensemble, I played the Bassoon, Clarinet and Piano. I love to play, so any receptions or other events with live music, give me a call (classical, christian/comtemporary, standards, Christmas). I have taught all ages, presently at Cougar Mountain Academy since 2004-2007, doing music classes and piano lessons. I have been an organist at the churches we have attended. In June 2007 I started IMQ Music, full time private teaching studio. I would love to play for any home parties or receptions. I play Christian, pop and hymns, classical and standards. I am a member of MTNA since 2007 and a member of the South King County WSTMA Chapter.


    My Teaching Philosophy
    I want it to be enjoyable, and to teach more than to play the notes. Piano, or any instrument, is part of the performance and how you sit or put your hands on the keys or off, it all creates the mood of the piece being played. Parents need to show the students responsibility for practice, yet parents need to provide the environment to let them practice. Advancement is all based on practice, consistency and support.
