Greetings from the Wonderful World of Music. I am excited about new beginnings with Monrovia Middle School Choral program.
I received my Bachelor of Music in Performance from the University of North Alabama in 1996, where I studied with Dr. James K. Simpson, Mr. Rick Mason, Mr. Lloyd Jones, Dr. Edd Jones, Dr. Frances Moss, and Dr. Tom Ed Moore.
I have been involved with music education and performance for over 20 years, teaching all levels of music from beginning to pre-professional to include theory, stage performance, jazz, improvisation, American Musical Theater, musical revues, blues and rock. Previously, I was the Band and Theater Director for Athens High School, which I am a proud alumnus.
I have performed with the Nashville Blues Society and the Classic Blues Jam, as well as, performed sax/keys/vocals with various rock, blues, and country bands in West and Middle Tennessee including Bluesberry Jam and Shiloh.
