A music educator for 20+ years, Peggy specializes in practical, easy-to-use technology for music educators at all levels. In this role, she conducts application-based training at clinics and hands-on workshops across the country.
When it comes to her musical background, you name it and chances are Peggy’s done it. Taught in a private music school for three years (group and private piano). Played in a few popular duo/trio groups for several years before going on the road for another year. While living in New York, studied jazz piano with Harold Danko, worked alongside singers in piano bars, accompanied in dance studios and held music director positions for off-Broadway musicals as well as summer stock productions.
Peggy’s earlier non-music jobs – at a Wall Street law firm and a sales executive for a resort company – helped her become the compassionate, thorough and problem-solving dynamo she is today.
From Northwest Missouri State University, Peggy holds an all-level music education degree with extensive experience in band (concert, marching, ensemble and solo) and choir. With piano as the primary performance instrument, she was a skilled private studio accompanist as well as for choir, vocal and instrumental performance.
At the University of Denver, Lamont School of Music, she obtained her Masters in Piano Performance (with a teaching assistantship responsible for elective group piano classes and piano proficiency for music majors) giving Peggy her first taste of technology – and an exciting glimpse into the future of what music education could (and would) become.
