Education / Training

Music has fascinated me as far back as I can remember. I have been involved in music since grade school. I enjoy a wide variety of music styles and have studied many instruments as well as music theory. I have a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Music from Walla Walla University and have taught music in various capacities for 7 years. I have soloed throughout the south Puget Sound area, including being the feature tenor soloist in the Easter section of Handel’s Messiah last spring.
