    This is my 20th year teaching.  Oh, how the time flies! My husband, Jose, and our beautfiful baby girl Arianna Desiree who is now 4 years old are proud to reside in Rincon, GA.  We have 2 precious puppies  LeeLee, and Harley who are spoiled rotten!  I began taking piano lessons at the age of 5.  Throughout school I was involved in chorus and band.  I attended Milligan College in Johnson City, TN where I received my BA in Music Education.  Later I attended Georgia Southern where I received my Masters in Educational Leadership.  I am now working on completing my doctorate in Curriculum Studies from Georgia Southern Universit.  I love both music and learning! As an adult I began playing guitar and this instrument has found a place in my heart as well. Music has always been an important part of my life.  It has opened many doors for me and brought me a sense of joy and peace.  One of the greatest joys as a music teacher is watching my students become musicians in their own right. Then they can experience the joy of music making for themselves. Music education is vital to a well rounded learning experience. I am also humbled to serve as the worship leader for my church where I get to play in amazing band.  I truly believe in music and the potential that it unlocks in many facets of our lives.  Please feel free to contact me if you need anything.  My classroom is always open, so please stop in and join in the fun of music making!
