I am a teacher and performer with over two decades of experience in transformative music education. With a unique background in music and women studies, I am committed to driving gender and racial equity forward through music, from the beginning classroom to the professional stage. Join me in reimagining music education that links artistic excellence to empowerment and social justice.

"Thanks for everything you bring to your students and to this music program. Your humor, your enthusiasm, your ability to believe in them and relate to them, to take them seriously without being 'serious'. My daughter's middle school experience was you and music at WMS-everything else was waiting. I am pretty certain you have changed the course of her life"
