As far back as I can remember, music has played an important role in my life. From my earliest memories, I would get my hands into anything I could use to create rhythms, melodies, and songs. After graduating from high school, I received a full scholarship in music performance to study at the HARTT School of Music in Hartford, CT. In addition, I furthered my formal studies by obtaining an M.Ed. in Education from American International College in Elementary Education and Moderate Special Needs K-8. Over the last 25 years, I have worked locally as a music/academic teacher, live performer, and session musician for children, adults, and families.
