Most of the time you'll find me doing what I do best...… teaching children, teens and adults to love music and develop their God Given talents for the Glory of God!
I love to sing, play piano and jam on my saxophone in the church orchestra! I find joy teaching and seeing children, teens and adults learn to love music and theatre as much as I do!
Loving musical theatre is easy because that is where all the arts find their culmination in one fantastic event! What joy I have when seeing a script develop from its first rehearsal to a full production as children and teens bring it to life!
The final product of our work on stage is one of the most thrilling experiences I've ever had as a teacher of singing and theatre.
