As a youngster growing up in a large Italian family, on a farm in northeastern Colorado, Gail showed an interest in the only musical instrument in her home, her mother's old accordion. Her formal music instruction began at the age of 10 in Ft. Morgan, Colorado, where she enjoyed lessons and participated in annual accordion contests, Kiwanis Stars of Tomorrow, talent shows, and many other local events.
Gail majored in piano at Loretto Heights College in Denver while continuing her study in classical accordion with Robert Davine at the University of Denver. After graduation, she played “honky tonk” piano in Central City, Colorado, and taught music in the Denver Public Schools. She continued to study the Orff and Kodaly methods of music education and became a Certificated Orff music teacher.
