When I’m away from the classroom, I enjoy:
- Playing my piano and listening to music
What might people be interested to know about you?
- I am especially interested in meeting and performing music with people from different cultural backgrounds. I also enjoy traveling, both here in the United States, and overseas.
Psalm 100 expresses the importance of music in service to God:
“Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands. Serve the Lord with gladness; come before his presence with singing. Know ye that the Lord he is God; it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise; be thankful unto him, and bless his name. For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.”
I strive to make sure my students always know that I believe in their God-given talents and that through hard work they can accomplish great things in serving the Lord through music.
