I have enjoyed singing, dancing, playing trumpet and piano all my life. I started taking lessons at the age of 6 and knew that I was meant to be a music teacher. During my school years I was always involved in multiple music lessons each week. I attended Troy Univeristy, Troy Alabama, for 5 years so I could major in vocal/ choral and instrumental music. I earned my Bachelor and Masters Degrees and have 23 years for teaching experience. My teaching experience include band 5th-12th and vocal/ choral K-12th. I have coached vocal and instrumental students that successfully made All-State Band and Chorus. I presently teach elementary music in Montgomery, Alabama and serve as chairman of the Montgomery Public Schools Elementary Honor Choir.

My teaching experience includes :
11 years teaching elementary music

Since 1999 each year I have served as the music director for Alabama Girls State and prepare a choir to perform at inauguration cermonies.
My teaching style is to find the students' level and favorite type of music and build their talent from those two points. I enjoy teaching at the elementary level because I love building a strong foundation in their music skills.
