Music

Music is like breathing. It’s the most natural thing I do, and something I can’t live without. I love just about all genres, and not a day goes by that I’m not listening to music or singing. I don’t perform live as much due to spending more time raising my kids, but the stage still calls my name often. I have recently started coaching vocal/piano students with my own method which includes ear training rather than classical training. It’s a privilege to watch students of all ages come alive and love music even more than they thought they could!

Performer

I've been a performer since I was 6 years old, and I still love it. The stage is home to me, and there's nothing quite like the feeling of being surrounded by my best friends.

Songwriter

I have a passion for writing songs, and was fortunate enough to have one in a movie! I was previously the first coordinator for the NW Arkansas chapter of the Nashville Songwriters Association.

Instructor

While I never really received formal training myself, I've somehow been blessed with the opportunity of coaching others in voice and piano!

The stage is my favorite office

It’s all about Music

Music was born into me, and I couldn’t escape it if I tried. Everything in my life has a soundtrack, and every memory is connected to a song. I started in pageants when I was 3 years old and started my first paid gig at age 6. I have performed in music shows, toured with bands, toured radio stations, written songs, lived in Nashville, written a score for a play, had a song in a movie, got accepted into Berklee College of Music, and have experienced things I never would have without music.  I breathe it as much or more than I do oxygen, and now I have the opportunity to give back to others wanting to experience that feeling.

I had a few people ask if I would teach voice lessons locally. I agreed, without knowing just what an impact it would have on me. Within 10 months I had 40 students in both vocal and piano lessons. Knowing I would still want to continue working in marketing, I set these students up in group classes in order to save time. It’s been one of the most rewarding things I have done. Bringing music to students is an empowering feeling and a huge blessing that I don’t take for granted!
