Along with teaching 50+ students per week, Michelle is the founder and Chief Manager of Keys to Imagination, LLC. She has presented sessions at The National Conference on Keyboard Pedagogy, Music Teachers National Association Conference, and various state conferences and local groups and has written technology articles for Keyboard Companion, Clavier, and American Music Teacher. Michelle’s graduate work in Instructional Design and teaching experience have helped her author Studio Makeover: Technology “Addition”®, Are We There There Yet? A Musical Journey Around the Globe®, A Walk on the Wild Side®, Road Trip: America the Beautiful®, and Double Click Curriculum®.
Michelle currently lives in Owatonna, MN with her husband, Kevin, and their twins, Brandon and Brianna. She enjoys scrapbooking and traveling.
