In 1980, at her father’s urging, she revived the Music Memory Program that has its origins in a program taught in the 1920’s. Music Memory quickly spread throughout the state of Texas through sponsorship by the University Scholastic League for Texas students in grades 2 - 8. Music Memory has also expanded to schools and community organizations around the nation. Teachers in 23 states now teach the Music Memory Program with students aged 7 - 99.
