She was a High School Music teacher for seven years as well as a piano teacher for 49 years, entering children in exams for most of those years, which she still continues.
Promoting female composers, through highlighting their compositions in concert, and organising talks and concerts and performing in these areas, has been her more recent endeavour.
Over the last fifteen years or so she has been passionate about composing piano works suitable for exam purposes and her own students, some songs and small instrumental works.
