Have you ever wished you had your very own music teacher to help you find  your way?


NEW for Fall 2020, video lessons to help you learn and teach singing, playing flute or recorder, and reading music notation to the children in your life!


These six, 45-minute long sessions will be delivered LIVE via Zoom and seats are limited. Sessions will be recorded for those who cannot attend live and/or want to be able to review them later.

Live classes are Wednesdays at 4 p.m. Central Daylight Time, September 2, 9, 16, 23, 30 and October 7. Can't make it then? Remember - all sessions will be recorded.


Here is what you can expect from each session.

No musical background is required. To get the most benefit from these sessions you will need paper, pencil, an instrument, and an open heart. It is not necessary to purchase either Simply Music or Music Unfolds, but I am offering a special discount on this series to those that do.
