It is a great privilege to teach and influence people (young and old) in their learning of music. I believe that music is a gift created and given for us to enjoy, create and express; a powerful medium with the ability to move, transform, stir, inspire, encourage, motivate, drive, calm, instigate, bless, teach... the list goes on. It is limitless and transcendent. I am compelled to continually pursue growth and excellence in my skill as a musician and a teacher, knowing there will always be more to learn! Would love to hear from you and partner with you in your musical pursuits.
My Musical Education Background
BS in Music
Florida Christian College 1999
Diploma of Ministry in Worship and Creative Arts
Hillsong International Leadership College 2007
I began teaching piano and voice after I graduated college in 1999. I have experience in both private and group instruction, teaching classroom music for grades K-12, leading children's choirs, and coaching vocalists and vocal groups.
I have 20+ years of performance experience in a variety of settings including playing and/or singing for weddings, conferences, special events, churches; leading worship services, traveling with vocal groups and choirs.
Genres and Subjects Taught
I strongly believe in a holistic approach to teaching music, thus implementing a variety of subjects into my lessons, including music theory, technic, reading notation, improvisation/playing by ear, ear training, sight-reading, rhythms/rhythm instruments (some Orff-Schulwerk methods) and music history.
I am also passionate about song-writing and the creative expression that this aspect of music offers to students and musicians of all ages, and I encourage my students to explore their own musical creativity. Overall, my desire is to partner with students in pursuing their goals, and to guide them in cultivating their musical gifts.
