I have been a professional singer for more than 40 years. I have a degree in music education, choral general, and have also taught high school, junior high school, middle school, elementary, and preschool music in several school systems around the state. Currently I teach private piano and voice at a small music academy in Carmel, Indiana. My vocal range runs from E below middle C to C two octaves above middle C. I have been a member of a praise band at my church for more than 5 years. We usually take the 11:00 a.m. service. I perform outside of church as well at nursing homes, hospitals, schools, county fairs, and other venues.

My earliest influences were singing gospel hymns in church, I was an avid fan of the Monkees in the 1960's, and other pop groups as a young teenager and older teenager. I was cast in musicals in high school, (The Music Man, The Wizard of Oz, and Carousel). I went to Indiana School of Music and Ball State School of Music, completing a bachelor of science in music education in 1981. I like pop, gospel, country, contemporary Christian, hits from the 1920's to present day, jazz, classical, folk and bluegrass styles of music. I have extensive experience in vocal performing in all of these genres. Please don't ask me to rap or thrash.
