Hello Everyone! Thank you so much for visiting my website! For those of you who may have checked in in the past 2 years, I'm so sorry I have been MIA! I'm now back. I hope that you have survived/are surviving these extraordinary times. It obviously threw me, my friends and colleagues, this profession, and my world, into uncharted territory. Just a few words about what I've been up to.
In the works, was starting a new music school in the Quad Cities. Once everything shut down, and we were waiting on a lease, and other things, it seemed too far a reach, BUT...we got it done! The Deanery School of Music opened, a gorgeous building in Davenport, that was under threat of being torn down. I welcome you all to stop by some day!!
I put on a series of house concerts during the early days of the lockdown. A few of those are available to view on my YouTube channel. I started teaching (mostly on zoom, but some in person, in Iowa) at the University of Northern Iowa, and Biola Conservatory. I immersed myself in helping my students, always having had a deep passion for teaching, but being pulled in so many directions that it was difficult to establish a teaching base. What I thought was going to last just for 1 year at both universities, became two! When the NYCB started back up in fall 2021 (so grateful) it was a super busy year!
I have now entrusted my precious students to cellists who live in each of these communities.. .but thanks to zoom, I have let them know I will always be there for them in their journey!
With that, I invite you to explore my updated concert schedule, some new additions on my YouTube channel, and be on the lookout for a new CD coming soon, with Rene Lecuona, 3 juicy sonatas by women composers of last century. Hope to see you!
