Bonnie is an acclaimed solo pianist. She began her formal piano education at the age of 5 and studied at the Eastern Conservatory of Music in Oldwick, New Jersey. She continued in New York City under the guidance of her teacher, performing bi-annually at Columbia University for 10+ years.

 

She became lead-Music Director at the High Bridge United Methodist Church in 2009 at age 13. This is where she was first exposed to the pipe organ, guided by her teacher from The Juilliard School of Manhattan. Bonnie then became the Music Director at the Round Valley UMC in 2017. In addition to her responsibilities at both churches, she has extensive experience in performing at weddings, corporate events, cocktail hours, funerals, and other special events and services.

 

In 2018, she received her B.A. in Piano and Organ Performance from Kutztown University of Pennsylvania. During her time there, she participated in the University Choir and several chamber ensembles; with a notable performance of the four-handed piano piece, Slavonic Dances, Op. 46 No. 1, by Antonin Dvorak. She extensively studied all levels of music composition and arrangement, music in film, music theory, and piano pedagogy. Her first solo recital was exclusively on pipe organ, where she played classical and baroque repertoire at an area church.

 

In recent years, she has been teaching piano lessons of all levels in her own studio, Signature Music, located at the Shoppes at the Farm in Whitehouse Station, NJ. She has prepared her students for recitals and competitions of their own. In addition, she is also a Real Estate Professional with Coldwell Banker Realty of Mendham, NJ. You can find her website here.

Bonnie continues to inspire others by using her musical gift of talent to support and play for various charitable causes such as nursing homes and others alike as she believes that music can leave a healing touch through sound and expression.
