She has taught music, levels pre-K through university, in both public and private schools including Northwestern University where she was a recipient of several competitive awards and fellowships in music education.

Lois specializes in creating music education curricula that incorporate all nine National Standards in Music Education with emphasis on engaging students in creative work: especially music improvisation, composition, and creative dramatics.

Lois serves as a national adjudicator in music composition and as an online national mentor in choral music education for The National Association for Music Education (MENC), as an adjudicator for the National Piano Guild as well as an adjudicator and board member for several music and arts organizations.

Committed to community arts, Lois is the Vice President of the Chicago Composers Forum and has created and implemented arts programs for organizations in the Chicago area.

In a special outreach program to the schools, "Link-UP - A Simple Melody," (2004) she worked as a teacher/liaison between the Chicago Public Schools and "arts partners," Weill Institute of Music at Carnegie Hall, Northwestern University, Ravinia and Verizon Company.

A versatile composer and author, many of Lois' choral, instrumental, piano and vocal compositions, musicals (authored and co-authored) and music texts have been internationally recorded, broadcast and published.

She is the author of the versatile texts for music education -- Playing the Soprano Recorder for Church, School, Community, and the Private Studio and Playing the Soprano Recorder for School, Community, and the Private Studio published by co-authors Rowman and Littlefield Education/MENC.

Lois' love for sharing life through music with others, her belief in the importance of musical experience in peoples lives, and the belief and that all human beings have musical and creative potential - with education as a key factor in the realizing of that potential -- are the underlying forces that fuel her passion for arts education.
