Lui radiates... an attitude of loving engagement.  Her music is an unqualified and unreserved affirmation of life...

Thanks for dropping by! Hope you have fun exploring – there’s lots here to poke through. Sign up HERE for my newsletter, order CDs from my Catalogue, find song lyrics, and browse through archives of reviews, photos, and musings from over the years.

See UPSIDE-UP MUSIC pages on the "other side" of my website (link at left) for the educational aspects of my work. You'll find info about my individually-tailored Adult Music Lessons (Ukulele, Clawhammer Banjo, Music Theory and Composition), as well as about my original music curriculum for early-elementary students.

COME JAM WITH ME is a 3-year music curriculum comprised of 12 seasonal collections of songs, and includes online parent-child interactive classes. This original curriculum originated as Kids' Jam starting in 2007, when I taught it to families in local classes. In the fall of 2020, I moved the curriculum online to make it accessible to all families everywhere! Please see my Podia website for details and to register for classes. The song recordings feature duo arrangements of traditional and original songs with Anand Nayak (of Rani Arbo and daisy mayhem) – which get rave reviews from grown-ups as well as kids. Each seasonally-focused collection has its own Songbook with lyrics, melodies and chords for each song, plus a supplemental Parent Guide. While it was developed primarily for families, it's an excellent resource for teachers as well.
