Interests: Family activities, yard work & home repairs, politics.
Philosophy of Teaching: I love to teach music through choir and band instruction. By learning a repertoire for children's choirs and bands, the students also learn music theory, music history, performance skills, vocal and instrumental techniques, and most importantly, how to bring praise and honor to the Lord God with music.
Classroom Goals: The goals for my classes are to bring students into a closer relationship with Jesus Christ, teach them the fundamentals of music, and help them realize and reach their full potential as musicians.
