Background

 

I began taking piano lessons at the age of 6 when my school offered beginner lessons. When I graduated from college I had accumulated 14 years of lessons from 7 teachers. I am grateful to my parents for the financial investment and encouragement in developing my piano skill. Now I have a vocation, personal enjoyment, and an array of piano literature.

 

Education

 

I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Music Education in 1996 and Master of Education in Music in 1998, both from Bob Jones University in Greenville, SC.

While studying in college, I was trained in piano, voice and handbells; piano and vocal pedagogy, choral training and conducting and general music instruction (grades K4-12).

Currently I have a teaching certificate from the State of South Carolina for music, K4-12.
