    Dear Parents and Students of Wylie East Raider Choirs,
     
    Thank you so much for visiting my teacher page at Wylie East. It is so exciting to be here again with the Wylie East Choral Department for the 2017-18 school year with our Head Director of Choirs Mrs. Terry Berrier.  Last year was AMAZING! I am thrilled to work with such DEDICATED and JOYOUS young musicians and inspiring groups dedicated to the art of performing and perfecting choral music.
     
    I believe passionately that with the guidance of a conscientious instructor, any child can increase his or her own individual gift, and maturation of talent and leadership will flourish as musicianship develops.  This is a belief that is very near and dear to my heart.  I hope to substantially influence a child's perception of his or her own innate talent and feeling of self-worth, as caring mentor teachers and directors have shaped mine.  Encouragement is a central part of my philosophy as a teacher as high school is such a crucial time in character development and growth.
     
    Music is an important part of the emotional and social development of an individual.  Music enriches, inspires, and lifts the imagination. I am so fortunate that this craft also encompasses math, science, history, and writing - as well as critical thinking and differentiated analysis.

    My belief is that music is MORE than just NOTES on a page... and every student matters.
