About: I am an ordained elder in the Church of the Anglican. I’ve been a musician and private music teacher. I’ve been teaching violin, viola & cello lessons, using Suzuki Method, for 38 years. I have worked with students as young as 18 months and as old as 86 years. My primary goal in teaching is that students will develop and cultivate a lifelong love of music.
I have had a lifetime of experiences: in the institutional church: I’ve been Sunday School teacher, Bible Study leader/participant, associate pastor, worship team member/leader, Caravan (scouting) guide/director, Children’s Ministries leader, and interim pastor. I was Associate Manager for Wendy’s, have done Traffic Research, and serve as Precinct Coordinator for elections.
