In her words:

"I began teaching my children. We started with the recorder and in time we added the piano. I began teaching my friends' children and my children's friends. Soon there were people I didn't know walking through my door for lessons. One of my joys is to teach a student from their musical beginnings and, in due time, to have both that student and their children study here at Pacem."

"To give our study a sense of purpose, students can be awarded certificates for weekly achievement in theory, sight reading, and their prepared lesson. Students perform at Fall, Winter and Spring Workshops, and we offer Concerts twice each year in December and June. Certificates are awarded annually at the June concerts to students who complete performance requirements at nine progressive levels in piano and harpsichord, or recorder, courses of study in theory and harmony, and sight-reading."
