TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I hold a Bachelors of Science in K-12 Music Education. I taught in a rural, low-income school from 2013-2016 and then in an urban low-income school for one semester. I currently run a business teaching elementary general music classes to homeschoolers both at my location and in homeschool cooperatives.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching methods are the result of a blend of the philosophies of Carl Orff, John Feierabend, Zoltan Kodaly, and Emile Jaques-Dalcroze, and others, with my training in the Orff-Schulwerk method being predominant.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I was awarded over $10,000 in grants during my first three years of teaching.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Bachelor's of Science in Music Education from Austin Peay State University, licensed to teach K-12 Instrumental or Vocal Music
