Music is one of the most amazing ways that we can express ourselves, explore our creativity and tap into that something special that we all have within us. I'd love to help guide you on your journey of expansion and self-discovery through music!
Here's a little bit more about my experience: I've worked with a very diverse group of students over the past 12 years. I've worked in at-risk and underserved schools, juvenile detention facilities, after-school programs, children with special needs including autism, ADHD, and speech apraxia. I specialize in voice and the creation of music. I encourage improvisation, movement, and writing as a part of each lesson. The more senses we can include in our learning, the better.

When I'm teaching, singing or playing I get that amazing feeling that lets me know that I'm in exactly the right place at the right time. Something inside of me says, "Yes, I was born for this!" That's what I love the most.
I love helping people discover something special about themselves. I live for those visible light bulb moments. I think music helps people discover who they are.
