About Joan

I'm here to help. I have been teaching for over thirty years and am licensed in Massachusetts and New Mexico. I have a B.S. in Music Education, M.S. in Creative Arts, and M.S. in Media Literacy.
My experience in the classroom has been teaching Music (general, keyboards, choral, music theory), Performing Arts, Drama, History, English, and Humanities from grades Kindergarten through High School. I have taught private lessons in piano/keyboard and voice to both children and adults. I have coached drama students for auditions for Arts schools and plays. I have directed youth and adult chorouses in secular and sacred venues. I have written and produced school musicals and plays for public performances and competition (National History Day).

I look forward to working with you or your student whether tutoring in an academic subject or enhancing skills in the arts.
