MUSIC / PRESCHOOL – 8TH GRADE
I am so excited to join the staff at CHP as the music teacher. I hold a Bachelor’s of Music Degree from Heidelberg University and a Master’s Degree in Teaching from Marygrove College. I have taught in the Cranford, Parsippany, and Readington Township school districts. For the past 20 years, I have owned and operated my own piano studio in which I was able to share my love of music with so many amazing students.
Teaching is my opportunity to share my passion for music and the arts with my students. Music has been an essential part of my life, and I am so excited to share my knowledge and experience with the students at CHP. I am rewarded every time I have the opportunity to share my knowledge with a student and witness their growth and the effect that music has in their lives.

An article written by the New York Times highlights that learning multiple languages could improve cognitive skills beyond those related to language, which is a considerably different viewpoint than previously thought.
