About Emily

About Emily
I studied Piano Pedagogy and Music Therapy at Utah State University. I have a passion for psychology and social work, and look forward to working as a music therapist in the near future. I currently teach a small handful of piano students, focusing on improvisation, theory, technique and composition.

Teaching Experience
I have taught piano lessons off and on since I was sixteen years old (roughly ten years). I have also worked as a residential manager, training and managing an average of eight staff at any given time. I have completed an internship in music therapy, where I worked with children with disabilities (various diagnoses), adults with disabilities, addiction recovery clients, hospice clients, and nursing home residents.
