My instruction is catered to the wants and needs of each student. Your agenda is my agenda. As a performer, I crave portraying characters onstage. I continually seek opportunities to grow as a performer and to relate my performing experiences back to my teaching.
I am a professional singer and pianist primarily based in Central, SC with frequent visits to New York City.
As a teacher, I specialize in helping my students discover and develop their musical gifts.

I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Music Education and Piano degree from Southern Wesleyan University, a Master of Music in Vocal Performance degree from the University of Georgia, and a Doctor of Musical Arts degree in Vocal Performance and Pedagogy at the University of Southern Mississippi.
I teach a full-time voice and piano studio in New York City and am an Assistant Professor of Music at Southern Wesleyan University in Central, SC. I also have students Skype from all over the world. Voice training is my specialty but I also love being a piano teacher. I have worn many musical hats in my career. I've taught kindergarten through 8th grade music, worked as a professional accompanist at several universities, directed choirs, accompanied church services, and served as the music director/conductor of musicals.
