I am a teacher, performer and choral conductor.
This is the beginning of my 8th year teaching elementary school (my 3rd at Oakcliff!). I previously have taught at the college level and private music lessons. Elementary is by far my favorite.
I am a trained singer but
play a variety of instruments. I began taking piano as a 7 year old and
now teach other 7 year olds. My singing career began in church choirs
and school choruses. Although I am happy singing solos, I find that I
really enjoy singing with a small group best. As a music teacher I have
had to learn guitar, recorder, auto harp and all the classroom
instruments. Who knew when I was a little girl playing the triangle in
music class that one day I’d have an entire room full of instruments.
Last year we started a
chorus here at Oakcliff. We meet Tuesday and Thursday mornings and all
are invited. I gives me great joy to pass along the love of singing
beautiful music to our children.
