    "Music washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life."   ~Berthold Auerbach

         Thank you for visiting my page!  I have the joy of working with some of the brightest,
    most beautiful students in the nation.  I have grown to love my students so much and I cannot wait to see them grow and prosper as adults.  They are both our present and our future; so valuable and precious now and yet are always learning and growing into their purposes and how they will bless and shape our future world.  
    About Me:
    I have been singing since age four, drumming since 13, writing music since 14, and playing guitar since high school.  I graduated from a REALLY great music school at DePauw University in Greencastle, IN with a Bachelor of Music Education (Choral/General). I have taught music for many years and LOVE teaching middle school music and drum line.  

    Here are some more quotes about music! 🎤🥁🎹🎧🎼

    "Music is what feelings sound like."   ~Author Unknown

    🎸 "I think it's so cool that you can pick up the guitar and create something that didn't exist 5 minutes ago.  You can write something that no one's ever heard before.  You have music at your fingertips."       ~Michelle Branch 
    "Albert Einstein's mother was a talented musician who made musical expression a part of daily home life when her children were growing up. Albert Einstein began playing the violin when he was 6 years old. By the age of 13, he was playing Mozart's sonatas. Einstein once said, "Life without playing music is inconceivable to me. I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music ... I get most joy in life out of music."
