Howdy! Welcome to the Lake Harbor Middle School Band page! :)
This is my 15th year teaching Band and my 5th year here at Lake Harbor Middle. I love teaching Band and we are lucky to have a very strong Band program here at Lake Harbor!
I graduated Cum Laude from Loyola University in 1998 with my Bachelor's in Music Education. In 2005, I earned my Master's in Music Performance on String Bass from Southeastern Louisiana University. I've played bass professionally since the age of 15, and I continue to play bass (both upright and electric) on the weekends for Broadway shows in and around the New Orleans area. I have performed with the Jeferson Performing Arts Society (JPAS), the Mahalia Jackson Theatre, the Saenger Theatre, Le Petit Theatre, Rivertown Reperatory Theatre, and the Tulane Summer Lyric Theatre, just to name a few. I have also performed with the Pensacola Symphony and the Gulf Coast Symphony. As a constantly performing professional musician, I feel like I have more to offer my students than just "teaching them an instrument". My professional playing experiences allow me to continue to improve on my art form, pass on that newly learned knowledge to my students, and to show my Band kids that I actually "practice what I preach".
I am looking forward to another amazing year here at Lake Harbor Middle! Please email or call me if you have any questions. I am happy to help! :)
