Molly’s love of music began early in life. She began her lifelong journey to immerse herself in learning piano at age seven. At thirteen, she added violin lessons as well. By the time Molly reached high school, she knew that music would be her major in college, and that music would always be a vital part of her life.
Molly played violin with her high school orchestra, including taking part in productions of Fiddler on the Roof and Anything Goes. She also played piano with the orchestra, and performed the first movement of Grieg’s Piano Concerto in A minor in concert. Molly played the piano for her school’s top show choir as well, performing with the group throughout the Denver area. She was also a member of the Colorado All-State Orchestra. All this time, she continued her private lessons in both piano and violin.
While still in high school, Molly auditioned for, and got, the title role in the Country Dinner Playhouse’s production of Fiddler on the Roof.
After high school, Molly chose the University of Denver’s Lamont School of Music to continue her music education. She graduated Magna Cum Laude with her Bachelor of Music degree in piano. She was invited to join the academic honor society, Phi Beta Kappa, as well as the music honor society, Pi Kappa Lambda. She has also completed her Master of Music in piano at the Lamont School of Music.
While in college, Molly accompanied many vocal and instrumental students, and discovered the joy of chamber and collaborative music. She formed partnerships and friendships with many other musicians, including professional musicians in several countries. She has also worked as a pianist for several area churches and spent one holiday season as a pianist at Nordstrom.
Molly believes that music should be an integral part of a well-rounded education. She hopes that her passion for music will help others find the same joy and appreciation that can add such enrichment to life.
