Darlene headshotDarlene Jones began to pursue music seriously after a brush with cancer in 2010. Her first keyboard was from a yard-sale, but she soon bought a Kawai baby grand and set about dedicated study in piano. She studied with several local piano teachers, ultimately finding a good match with Cathy Pescevich Kreplin of Ascencion Music in the summer of 2014.  Cathy immediately recognized not just Darlene’s love of piano but her interest in music theory and, ultimately, her natural ability with teaching.  Throughout 2015 and 2016, Darlene actively pursued courses of study to become a teacher of both beginning piano and young children’s general music.  In 2017, she earned both her “Excellence in Piano Teaching” certificate and her MusikGarten certification.
