About Me
Music is my passion! I studied contemporary and classical vocal performance, contemporary guitar performance, and music business in college. I have an appreciation for all music from classical to punk to country to metal! I have extensive performance experience from being in cover bands, performing my original music, and choirs. I teach children to adults. I engage the students in learning while having fun, and I am very patient, and love to teach.
