Biography

I am a CMN and Kansas Music Educators Association Member. I have been teaching Music for 29 years and have a BS Degree in Music Education and a Masters Degree with an emphasis in Composition and Recording.

I presented the Rhythm Cups Presentation at the 2017 International CMN Conference in MA. Rhythm Cups has five levels of rhythm with each level being progressively more difficult. Each level has six rhythms for the students to learn. Labels with a one-measure rhythm are placed onto ordinary plastic cups, and then games and activities can be used.

I was selected to present the Sound Stories Presentation at the Kansas Music Educators Association Conference in Wichita, KS. This presentation provides ways for children to use instruments and music to help tell stories. Rubrics are also provided to help teachers assess the students abilities.

The Music and Movement presentation is about ways to use music and movement to help develop early literacy skills. I have many materials to go with this presentation including a CD, Lesson Plans and a Coloring Book. The lesson plans provide lessons for the general classroom, music, PE, and art classes. This is a great program for preschools, daycare and Kindergarten classes.
