I am a state certified k-12 music teacher. In addition to classroom teaching, I have taught privately out of my home studio for seven years. Each student receives a weekly lesson plan which includes notespelling, rhythmic notation, and scales. Although I keep to a specific program for each student, I encourage them to explore a variety of genres and am always willing to work with them on hymns, popular music, or school choir songs. In addition to teaching, I have worked as a church music director for 20 years.
