Ruth Rineer was born and raised in upstate New York. I was transplanted to this area in 1975 when I began studies at what is now Cairn University. Music has been a part of my life since a very young age. It is a blessing to be able to use that gift in worship. I’ve been teaching private piano lessons for 16 years and find great joy in helping others to learn. I also substitute teach in Philadelphia Charter Schools and often carry my ukulele with me for the purpose of engaging students in musical activities.
