I live in Olympia, WA, USA. Met my husband while playing fiddle in an Irish band. I Play fiddle, harp, piano, some tin whistle and bodhran. Persian ney and kamanche. Some uke and guitar.

Currently, I teach general music at an elementary school and have introduced tin whistle and bodhran units for the older kids. Have taught elementary, middle, and high school orchestra, but there’s no orchestra program in my current district, so I’m about to embark on an after-school beginning violin/tin whistle/bodhran group for the 4th an 5th graders. (Yikes! I know I should keep it simple with just violin or just violin and tin whistle. Oh well - go big or go home!) Anyway, I’ve used thesession.org as a resource for a number of years and am thankful for it!
