I am very excited to get to teach instrumental music as a profession!!!  I absolutely love music, love learning to play instruments and love teaching!  I started taking piano lessons from my Mom at age 3 and continued taking lessons until I finished my Master's degree in Piano Performance and instrumental Music!  In addition to playing the piano, I played brass and strings in various instrumental groups throughout elementary, middle, high schools and college!  I continue performing with groups in our community as a professional musician, am the worship leader at my church, speak and lead worship at women's retreats, taught at Cadek Conservatory, sang with the Glen Draper Singers,  and conducted the L'Abri Symphony Orchestra for over a decade!  I love to play every instrument I can find.....my newest challenge is the bag pipe!!! My life has been enriched and embellished by a love of music that was instilled in me from an early age.   Every day my goal is to pass along to my students a lifelong passion for instrumental music for their enrichment and enjoyment!   Half of my 30 years of teaching instrumental music was spent serving the Ooltewah Middle School as band director!   This is my second year at East Hamilton and I'm thrilled to get to teach instrumental music, build the band program and continue the band legacy here in our new facilities! I plan to teach at EHMS for as long as the Lord allows.   Learning to play an instrument is a skill that will last a lifetime....and beyond!!! Thank you in advance to the parents that allow their children the opportunity to learn to play an instrument!  I enjoy music and teach music today because my parents afforded me the opportunity to learn to play! It is never too late to learn....but it sure is easier when you're younger!! Looking forward to a great year!
