I am very passionate about bringing the joy of music into the lives of the children and adults that I work with. I have been teaching for 50+ years and I hope to continue for a long time.

Joe G

​​I like this song because it reminds me of Spain, dancers, and bullfights. When I was learning this it was tricky because of its many different rhythm patterns. I am glad that I learned it pushed me out of my comfort zone and was lots of fun.​

Brander L

It was a lot of fun creating this piece.  It made me think of all the different possibilities I could put into the piece. It helped me learn what notes between the Right Hand and Left Hand go well together when composing.

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.
