1. How long have you taught piano?

Many years, 20 plus. I started with helping out with my children when they were learning and from there I continued.

2. What’s your favourite part of your job?

Just generally teaching. I love music and teaching what I know in the hope that others will also come to love it like I do.

3. What pieces do you like to play the most?

Rock n Roll.

4. What is something people don’t know about you?

I tend to be an open book; people pretty well know that I tend not to hide anything.

5. What’s your favourite movie?

Probably The Sound of Music or Gone with the Wind.

6. What has been the most memorable stage of your life?

Having my children -two daughters. Raising them to become independent young women now, who have left home and living independent lives of their own.

7. How do you like your coffee?

Weak, white, and one sugar.

8. If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?

Somewhere where I can see the northern lights.

9. What are your goals for the year?

Just for all my music students to achieve the best they possibly can through my teaching.

10. What is one thing you think this community needs?

I think our community has a lot to offer just as it is. You’re looking at sport, entertainment, services, people just need to go out and find it. If you’re into music you’ve got different bands and orchestras you can go to. We’ve got heaps of churches, lots of services. Nobody’s going to come to your door and knock, you have to go out and look for it.
