Music is my eudemonia, as well as, my asylum. I have come to personally know and enamor its therapeutic benefits. It has inspired me to develop personally and academically. On innumerable occasions, when I was privileged with the opportunity to perform, I continuously saw the relief and the elation that the music was bringing to people. As Bob Marley once said, “One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.” Consequently, I sought out to make it my life’s goal to use music therapeutically to replenish lives. I aspire to do this by naturally leveraging my adoration for music, expanding my knowledge and experiences in music, and ultimately becoming an education leader/practitioner in music therapy. I graduate from Florida A & M University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music, with a concentration in classical voice. During my undergraduate year I proudly served as the following leadership positions in my 80 plus concert choir as the President, Vice President, soprano section and assistant section leader. I am also a sister of the cherish sisterhood Sigma Alpha Iota International Music Fraternity inc. Currently I am a Graduate student at Florida State University aspiring to obtain my masters in music therapy. With my love, dedication and discipline for my profession I am certain that my students will benefit significantly as we build upon their musicianship.

I have taken flute lessons from the flute professor at FSU as well as guitar lessons from Dr. Leo Welch here at FSU. I have given multiple lessons and master classes on both flute and guitar. I have also been a music theory tutor for many students. I have a lot of experience with both giving and receiving lessons, so I have learned many ways to adapt to any situation.
I love laughing and making jokes, which is one of the most important aspects of any teacher. Lessons should be something to look forward to rather than dreading to spend time practicing. I do prefer being more laid back as a teacher, but still know when it's time to get more serious about the work.

Piano, Music Theory, French Horn
I am studying for my D.M. degree in Music Composition at Florida State. I have been playing piano since I was 4 and French horn since I was 12. My compositions have been performed by the USF Percussion Ensemble, members of the Greater Cleveland Flute Society and my electroacoustic works have been selected for festival such as Soundcrawl and the New York City Electroacoustic Music Festival.
