A little about me...

I love to sing, play instruments, and dance. Most of all I love to teach children music! I earned a bachelor's degree from Trinity University and a master's in Music Education from UTSA. I have worked in North East for thirty years. I hold two levels of Orff Schulwerk certification and one level of Kodaly Pedagogy. I enjoy singing in choirs and at church. I sing with the San Antonio Symphony Mastersingers and the Yellow Rose Singers of San Antonio.  I am a huge opera and symphony fan. I sang with the San Antonio Opera Chorus for 8 years. I love teaching our Coyotes music, choir, and movement at Canyon Ridge!
