I hold an all level, lifetime Texas teacher certification in music. My Bachelor of Music was completed at Texas A&M Corpus Christie and a first level Kodaly Certification was awarded at Southwest Texas State University (Texas State University). While primarily focused on music, general or remedial academics are also within my scope of interest and capability.

With over ten years of experience in managing performing ensembles and students in classroom and UIL functions, I employ gentle but effective techniques to foster musicianship while providing constructive feedback to a diverse range of students. I am also a generalist and can offer academic assistance for motivated individuals. Careful and constructive attention is given on campus or in a library setting. All instruction is positive and tailored to the individual with the idea of making the student successful.

The meeting site should be power chair accessible (this may include your campus, theater, or library).
