What instrument(s) do you play?
My main instrument is the violin. I began playing when I was 5 and haven’t stopped since!
Top five songs?
Though I don’t have a favorite song, I love listening to Classical music and Beethoven is my favorite composer.
What was the biggest “boost” to your musical education?
Growing up, I unfortunately didn’t have orchestra offered at my school, but there were two big “boosts” to my music education as a young student. The first was deciding to join a youth symphony program. The second was attending various summer camps and festivals such as Blue Lake, Birch Creek, and Interlochen.
If I wasn’t a music teacher I would probably be ______
If I wasn’t a music teacher or musician I would probably go into radio or at least try to! I also would enjoy decorating cakes and homes 🙂
