In Teacher Studio
I've been around music all my life. Music is all I know. I've been singing since the age of 3 and playing the piano since the age of 5. I have a passion for music and it's purpose!
My vision is to touch lives with the gift of music... Music is a gift and should be shared with the world and I desire to share the passion I have for music with those music lovers and those who desire to play a musical instrument. I enjoy working with students and seeing their skills and talents develop with a hope for them to become life-long musicians...
