Degrees and Certifications:
I am excited to be back at Mountain Vista Home School Academy for another year. I believe that the best way to learn about music is to perform it yourself. Music also gives us an incredible way to explore different artistic and cultural viewpoints from all over the world. As such, the MVHSA music curriculum is built around authentic music making experiences, in-depth discussions, and and diverse repertoire and examples from the world over.
In addition to teaching music classes at MVHSA, I also direct the after school Beginning Band, Concert Band, Jazz Band, and String Orchestra. Each of these groups performs multiple times a year, each time presenting a variety of different music. Whatever your childs musical inklings, I'm sure we have a place for them to thrive at MVHSA.
When I'm not teaching at MVHSA, you can often find me involed in the music community around Colorado Springs. I perform regularly in the area with the Chamber Orchestra of the Springs, the Colorado Brass Arts quintet, and with other groups as the opportunity presents itself; one recent highlight being the Colorado Spriings Fine Arts Centers production of "Barnum."
