About
I am a recently retired music educator with 33 of music classroom experience. I am a vocalist, pianist and composer who also plays the baritone horn and guitar. My Bachelor of Music degree is from the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater with majors in Music Education and Music Theory/History/Composition. My MEPD degree is also from UW-Whitewater, and I gained Adaptive Education certification along with that degree. I started composing at the age of 16 and have studied composition with Nicholas Contorno, Karen Boubel, and Joseph Koykkar. Over the past year, I've spent lots of time learning more about popular song writing and the music business, and have worked on my writing and music composition skills.
