Overview

My passion started at the tender age of five years old. It continued throughout school and I continue to enjoy it every day. In 2013, I received my Bachelor's degree in education. What kind? Instrumental Music with an emphasis on PIANO. I learned many valuable lessons about teaching strategies, music theory, music history and even took private lessons myself. I had a working scholarship at Northwest Missouri State University as an accompanist to the many other music students. I have dedicated a lot of time to my passion and I would love to share it with you and your child!
