About Nanci

I am a Dallas native but have lived in numerous other locations including the Adirondack mountains of upstate New York where I not only shoveled a lot of snow and fed the deer, bear, and turkeys, but taught English at Adirondack Community College. I have been a newspaper reporter, owned and operated a pre-school, and have managed a full acre organic garden for many years. My interests are wide and deep, including art history, classical and jazz music, physics, math, philosophy, botany, you name it.

I currently facilitate a group that meets twice a month, "The Science of Everything". It is a discussion group open to people of all ages and backgrounds that is a vibrant educational experience. I love teaching, almost as much as I love learning!

I am non-judgmental concerning my student's abilities, prior experience, success of failure rates in other programs or institutions. We are all capable of being the best we can be, given the right environment and encouragement.

I like to work with beginners and see the light bulbs go off when they get the hang of a C major scale or minor chord or bit of retained melody.

This introduction is brief and I have a lot of life experience not included, so please feel free to ask any questions. My schedule is flexible.
