About Angela


My musical education began while sitting on my mother's lap as she taught piano lessons. I began studying cello with a member of the Kansas City Philharmonic at age 9, and at age ten, I followed in my mother's footsteps to play the flute.

She is a great teacher. Relaxing environment and pushes me to be the best I can for my level. I love that she is flexible. I do equestrian show jumping and ride 5 days a week and teach 3 days a week and work full time and sometimes the shows may not work for my lesson schedule but she always works with me. holds annual recitals for studio and Christmas. I think anyone any age who wants to learn and can make it to her will love her and enjoy her....She also lets me play with my Black Cello =)
