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.  I currently play tuba and euphonium in a Dixie-Land Jazz Band!  I also currently teach piano and guitar from my home!  I'm the worship leader at my church, 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 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 third 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!   Learning to play an instrument is a skill that will last a lifetime....and beyond!!!

In addition to loving instrumental music, I enjoy traveling, camping, swimming, bike riding, pickle ball, doing diamond dots and word puzzles!  My favorite sports are playing soccer and tennis and watching football!!! 

Looking forward to a great year!
