Lowell Mason, often called the father of music education believed that music contributed to the well-being of the individual: âIt united that person with God and created better homes, and better citizens, and happier human beings.
In other words, music helps society in that people are more loving, happy, and law abiding.
I aim to teach my students not just how to sing, but the value of music and how it can change their lives and the lives of others. Music is much more than a group of pitches and rhythms put together to form something pleasing to our ears. Music is the study of science, a record of human history, an international language, and therapy to the human soul.
I grew up in Centennial, Colorado and started playing the violin in 4th grade. I developed an interest in singing in middle school, and started voice lessons when I was 16. I have been singing ever since!
I graduated from Brigham Young University-Idaho in April 2009, with a Bachelor degree in Music Science. I emphasized in vocal instruction.
I am happily married to my husband, Kevin, who is currently studying to be an optometrist.
I am a member of NATS which allows me to stay current with research and teaching methods for singing. It also allows me to give my students opportunities to perform in competitions.
Enjoy teaching students how to create beautiful music!
