D’Net Layton has taught piano for fifteen years, and voice for 10 years. She earned a Bachelors degree in Choral Music Education from Northern Arizona University in 1995. After graduation, D’Net taught chorus at the Junior High level and elementary general music. After taking a year off teaching in the public schools when her daughter was born, D’Net taught music, show choir, and drama at Eagleridge, an enrichment program for home schooled students offered by the Mesa School district.
Upon the addition of three more children to her family, D’Net devoted her time to her children and teaching privately in her home. She currently has a large studio of piano and voice students.
In addition to teaching piano and voice lessons, D’Net is also actively involved in her church. She is the director for the children’s music time, and often plays the organ and accompanies soloists.
In her free time, D’Net enjoys playing with her children and scrapbooking.
