Instructor Biography

For the past nine years I have worked with youth in a local church or through teaching music. Prior to this I had the privilege to study under Julliard graduate and concert pianist Dr. William Phemister while working on my Bachelors of Music from Wheaton Conservatory of Music (Illinois). Currently I am the music director of a local church and teach music in other training centers. Aside from that I enjoy hiking, building, learning and time with friends. I look forward to working with your kids!
