Teaches students:
Ages 10+

Teaching since:
June 2012

Graduate of NC A&T SU with a B.A degree in Clarinet Performance and a B.A. degree Music General. I marched in highschool corps style band and also college show style band on clarinet and saxophone. I have 4 years of teaching both elementary/middle school general music, band, and composition/production.

My goal as a teacher is to make sure that 1, students enjoy learning about music and creating their own sound and 2, that students learn to use the skills of music and apply them to other areas of their life. I truly believe that every person on earth has the capability to express themselves through music. I intend to bring out that musical expression through enjoyable, hard working, and focused lessons!
