Teaching since:
2010

Hello! I recently graduated in 2014 from Baylor University with a Cello Performance degree. I currently teach elementary orchestra (4th & 5th grade) in Dallas ISD. As well as teaching, I currently perform with the New TX Symphony Orchestra in Dallas and in my church orchestra on viola and cello.

We will learn a variety of pieces ranging from classical to contemporary/pop music while learning the techniques to play each string instrument! Can anyone say "Baby Shark" and "Despacito" fast enough? And I focus on music theory ---basic note and rhythm reading & writing and recognizing musical symbols.

I am also bilingual in Spanish ---fluent in reading/writing and basic in conversation (although I am continuously learning & improving my language skills!)

Begun in 1920 as the Texas Band Teachers Association, the Texas Music Educators Association is an organization of over 10,000 school music educators dedicated to promoting excellence in music education. TMEA is comprised of five divisions: Band, Orchestra, Vocal, Elementary and College. On behalf of its members and Texas schoolchildren, TMEA carefully monitors the actions of all state decision-making bodies on issues affecting fine arts instruction in Texas. In addition to many member benefits, TMEA offers professional development opportunities for its members with Region workshops and especially with its annual Clinic/Convention. TMEA supports the future of music education by offering scholarships to music education majors and by sponsoring the Texas Future Music Educators, an organization through which high school students interested in careers in music education learn more about what to expect in their college education and future careers.
