I offer tutoring in all levels and areas of music theory, AP Music Theory course and testing materials, music appreciation, state-certification exam materials, and any choral or instrumental class materials. I have 20 years of teaching experience in multiple subject areas of music, including test preparation for music entrance/exit exams. I consider exam preparation to by my greatest strength in teaching. With so many years of experience in classrooms from early elementary through college, I have a wide range of knowledge and familiarity with exam standards.

I graduated from Abilene Christian University with a Bachelor's in Music Education, and I am currently a certified classroom teacher in the state of Texas. My certification is PreK-12 in Vocal and Instrumental Music. I have taught choral music in the public schools of Texas and Oklahoma to grades PreK-12 and have also served as assistant band director at the middle school and high school levels.

During my time in the choral music classroom, I taught AP Music Theory at Conroe High School. I received my Master's in Music Theory from the University of Oklahoma. I taught on the music theory faculty at Sam Houston State University for five years, where I taught all levels of Music Theory and Sight Singing/Ear Training to music majors, and Music Appreciation to non-majors, both in-person and online. I am a professional accompanist in the local area, and I currently teach private voice and piano lessons.

Teaching is my passion, no matter what type of classroom setting I'm in. I feel that I am able to reach students just as personally online as in person, and I firmly believe that every student can have a solid understanding of the course or exam materials. I take as many approaches as I can to reach each one of my students as an individual learner, and I always find a way to share a bond with them that will aid in their success.

As a musician, I love to play piano not just professionally but for enjoyment and relaxation. I am a vocalist who loves to perform everywhere from the shower to the stage. I am generally listening to music with most things I do throughout the day. I have very eclectic taste. I have always been an avid reader. I prefer non-fiction, but try to keep a well-balanced palate of reading materials. I listen to a lot of audiobooks while I am on the go. I love to be outside in nature, and I walk at least a mile each day. I currently live in a National Forest, which has the most amazing birds and beautiful trees. I love to garden, and I have three dogs and three cats. My kids and I enjoy making a good cat meme or pet video compilation just for fun.
