Music has always been a part of my life. I sang in church and school when I was young and then continued my learning through college focusing on vocal performance and piano. I have had the opportunity to sing with a variety of different groups in the Washington DC area, touring most of the east coast with a professional bluegrass group and then more currently in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia where I live.
Genres include country, folk, bluegrass, rock, variety, pop, big band and jazz. In 2010, I released my first solo CD On My Sleeve including 13 original songs available through Amazon and CD Baby.
I am currently a member of a musical collaboration called “81 South” – a duo consisting of 2 vocals and guitar or a full band.
I am most fortunate to be able to teach voice and piano and share what I love so much with other people. I have several studios throughout the region and also teach privately from my home. In-home and/or group lessons are also available. Wanting to reach out to students who cannot make it to one of these locations – I am now offering lessons for both piano and voice via Skype. Please see my Lessons Page for details.
