I began teaching music lessons in September of 2001, and I have grown so much as a musician and teacher since then. Sharing the joy of music with my students makes my day each and every day!

Ilse H

​This is Ilse's improvisational composition "Mystical Sunset at the Beach."  She created both of the ukulele parts you are hearing on this piece.  Her teacher Elizabeth is playing the background part and Ilse is playing the melody.  Improvisational means that the song has some planned parts (the background) but the melody Ilse is playing is unique each time.

Our Favorite Composers/Books

  • Frederic Chopin
    Chopin is Elizabeth's favorite composer for the piano. In fact, he composed ONLY for the piano. It is no wonder many of her more advanced students enjoy playing his music also!
  • Melody Bober
    Melody Bober is such a popular composer with our students! We think it is because she is from Minnesota. So she knows what Minnesotans like in their music!
  • John Williams
    John Williams has been composing music for movies for such a long time! Many of the students enjoy playing the music from "Star Wars" and "Harry Potter," two of his most loved musical scores.
