About Me

As a young student growing up in Pearland, Texas I fell in love with music.  Inspired by my band director to not only be passionate about the music, but to be respectful and disciplined in attaining all goals.  This practice lead me to a full scholarship at East Texas State University, it was an experience of a lifetime.  Not only the excitement of marching with the Lion Pride Band to performing with the Wind Ensemble at top venue sites such as Carnegie Hall, I also had the privilege to teach Summer Music Camps and play in the summer musicals.  All these experiences molded and shaped me into who I am today, and has grown the passion I have to give each child the foundational knowledge and inspiration I was so fortunate to receive.  Along the way I met my husband of 19 years now, and raised three amazing children while running a small business.  Now that my children are young adults I look forward in continuing the journey I started years ago in teaching
