High achieving musician and teacher specializing in choral and general music
B.M. Summa Cum Laude, Music Education: K-12 Choral Emphasis | Brigham Young University
Growing up in Las Vegas, NV, I developed a passion for music at an early age. From simple beginnings in a Kodály children’s choir to graduating with top honors from BYU, I have become known for my hard work, organization, and leadership ability. My areas of interest include Music and Special Education, the Kodály Method, Contemporary Choral Music, and Secondary General Music. I currently live and teach full time in Henderson, Nevada.
My hobbies include running, ballroom dance, Ancient Near Eastern studies, and anything including adventure and the great outdoors.
My mission is to develop the innate capacity of my students to express themselves and understand others through creating, performing, responding, and connecting in musical ways.
