About Roberta

Since I was a child I excelled at both English and music subjects. I enjoyed both subjects so much that by the time I went to college I had to make a choice. The "first time around" I chose to major in English and eventually graduated with a B.A in Communication with a minor in English. I went on to become a newspaper reporter and through that journey I ran into a lot of legal terminology I knew nothing about. So I attended Penn State University to study Paralegal classes to help me with my writing and came out with a Paralegal Certificate. For the last 20 years, I have been a certified paralegal in some major law firms both in PA and Palm Beach County. English grammar and writing are extremely important in that line of work.

Throughout all that time I sang and performed at church as a vocal soloist and in a lot of musical theater shows. My love for music was still growing and I wanted to be more credentialed. So I went back to college and have been attending Palm Beach Atlantic University (PBA) to obtain my second bachelor's degree in vocal performance. I have been going there part-time since 2005 and I am almost done. I completed my senior recital in January 2014 and the piano proficiency exam as well. I just need a few other classes and I will be finished which is when I plan on continuing to obtain my master's degree in music. I have studied voice under Marilyn Mims and Dr Suzanne Galer at PBA and under the late Dr Richard Adler (Broadway Composer of "The Damn Yankees" and "The Pajama Game"). I pride myself on my music sight reading skills, perfect pitch and ear training.
