Hello and thank you for visiting my page!
I have a great love of music and strong desire to make the world a better place through bringing it to others-- whether it be in a worship setting or for those in need of an uplift in their lives, such as those that are convalescing. Opportunities to share talents bless not only the audience but also the performer, so it is important to me to include others in this service. Talents, when shared with good intent, improve best as they are shared with others.
Voice was my first instrument as a child but when I was old enough, became interested in playing an instrument in the school band and started learning to play flute at age 10. At the time, I had just started orthodontic treatment. It is very possible to learn to play flute AND have braces!
As an adult, I've participated for over a decade in a symphony chorus and chorale in the soprano section. I studied piano and organ for eight years under the founder and director of Ethos School of Music, Magnolia, TX. I currently hold positions in church that my family and I attend as the music coordinator, choir director, and congregational accompanist, playing piano and organ. I enjoy writing C instrument obbligatos to compliment hymns that the church choir will sing.
I've studied flute and voice in college. While there, requirements for study included active membership and performance in a choir and also performing solo on stage for voice and flute. Also, while a student there, I had the fun experience of being part of a flute choir.
One of my favorite composer music quotes is "Music is to me the perfect expression of the soul" by Robert Schumann. I truly believe this. Music lessons should be more than about learning to play an instrument and performing. My goal is to also help students connect with their instrument in a way that they feel it has become a part of who they are and a means of expressing their inner selves. Beautiful music can nourish the soul and has the power to uplift, comfort, and heal. This is as true to an audience as it is to the performer.
