I am currently a piano instructor at the Schwob Music Preparatory Division at Columbus State University and Rainey-McCullers School of the Arts in the Muscogee County School District. In 2015 I graduated with a Bachelor of Music in piano performance from Bob Jones University, where I won the annual commencement contest in 2012 and served as a collaborative pianist. During my time at BJU I sang in the graded choral program and developed a love for choirs. In my last year as a piano accompanist I performed with Eliezer Yanson and the University Singers on Perelman Stage at Carnegie Hall. My piano teachers include Maureen Penix, Peter Davis, Norman Krieger, and Alexander Kobrin. I recently earned my Master of Music in Piano Performance at Columbus State University's Schwob School of Music where I continue to serve as the accompanist for the Voices of the Valley, under the direction of Dr. Michelle Herring-Folta. My teaching studio consists of students ages 5 to 85 with a vast range of skill levels. I love meeting new students and learning about their previous musical experience. It's my passion in life to get others excited about the beautiful language of music!
