Sample Middle School Band Director
A little about me:
It's probably no surprise that I am a lover of all things music! I especially enjoy playing my trumpet and the piano. My boyfriend, my cat and I moved to Fort Collins, Colorado from Evansville, Indiana in the summer of 2020. When I'm not teaching or playing music, you can usually find me outdoors hiking, biking, or planning our next camping trip.
A little about my teaching background:
I graduated from Murray State University in 2015 with a Bachelor's Degree in Music Education. Since 2016, I've had the pleasure of growing the Sample Middle School band program into a nationally recognized award-winning organization. I also spend a great deal of time working with the Sample High School Marching Band as their brass instructor, and always enjoy coaching them to greatness!
The Sample Middle School Band performance schedule for 2021-2022 is as follows:

My philosophy of education is that all students are unique and must have a stimulating educational environment where they can grow physically, mentally, emotionally, socially, and musically. It is my desire to create this type of atmosphere where students can meet their full potential both as musicians and as citizens of the world. I will provide a safe environment where students are invited to share their musical ideas and take risks.
