What was the biggest “boost” to your musical education? 

I come from a musical family.  My Grandfather was part of a Greek Band and would lead Bride’s to the church on their wedding day back in Greece.  He instilled a love of music in me.  Also, my choral teacher in high school believed in me on days when I could not believe in myself.  She gave me solos, encouragement and the support I needed to then build confidence to become a teacher of the arts.

If I wasn’t a music teacher I would probably be ________

a Musical Theatre Performer.
