Classically trained at Oberlin Conservatory of Music, she plays a wide variety of musical styles from many different eras. She has performed internationally (Singapore, Hong Kong, Berlin, Germany) as well as in the US. Squeek lives in the historic mining town of Virginia City, Nevada, where she teaches elementary music, operates a piano studio, and performs at the Bucket of Blood Saloon and the Gold Hill Hotel. She enjoys collecting ethnic music from Indonesia, and recently traveled to Bhutan to perform. She has recorded 13 albums of American Popular Music of the early 20th century; see her website: www.goodoldsongs.com.
