About Mary


Bio

Music has been a huge part of my life, for as long as I can remember. I started piano lessons when I was 6, and was an accompanist for my school and church choirs by the age of 13. At that time I took a break from piano and started to learn guitar. Through my high school days, I used both instruments to accompany and added church organ to my skills. I took a break from studying music in my early college days, while I majored in art. After getting married, raising 2 kids to the middle school...

Music has been a huge part of my life, for as long as I can remember. I started piano lessons when I was 6, and was an accompanist for my school and church choirs by the age of 13. At that time I took a break from piano and started to learn guitar. Through my high school days, I used both instruments to accompany and added church organ to my skills. I took a break from studying music in my early college days, while I majored in art. After getting married, raising 2 kids to the middle school age, and deciding that music was a more practical field of study, I returned to school and got my BA in music education. I've taught every level from elementary through jr. college, and a variety of subjects, including general music K-12, chorus, class guitar & piano, and music theory. Since I completed my Masters in Music, I've been focused on directing and accompanying church choirs, but have always continued to teach private lessons - my absolute favorite activity. Now that I'm back into my study of art (graphic design this time), I enjoy the freedom of having a private music practice, where I can encourage my students to develop their talents so that they can have as much fun with music as I have. I have what I call a "3P Approach" to teaching. I try to make things personal, practical, and panoramic. In other words, I work with a student's learning style and goals, I try to find ways for them to make use of what they're learning, and I try to make it relate to larger things in life.
