I started this website because I wanted to fill in the gaps, I was seeing from other fantastic music educators’ and their websites and hopefully I’ve begun to do that. I began giving clinics at the urging of a dear friend and colleague of mine at Rhythm Band Instruments, and I’m so glad I did! My first administrator once told me that a sign of a good teacher is that they are a life-long learner and I thought to myself “sign me up, I love learning!” I think my love for learning as lead to my love for teaching. More importantly, I believe my love for learning has led to my love for teaching teachers. I learn more about my own instruction by preparing presentations to give to you wonderful teachers! I have present at the Texas Music Education Association for the past 8 years and have loved every session, not because I gave an amazing session, but because you ask the best questions!

I hope you find something here that inspires you, answers your questions, and keeps you motivated to bring music to children.
