BMED, VanderCook College of Music, 2003
MMEd, VanderCook College of Music, 2015 (expected)
I grew up in southern Illinois where I learned to love music from my clarinet teacher, Ms. Mary Nutt, who encouraged me with recitals, solos, and the opportunity to play in the All-State Band.
I am currently a member of CBDNA and Sigma Alpha Iota. Each year, I look forward to attending the Illinois Music Educators Association annual conference. I plan to complete the BMEd degree in the spring of 2013. You may view my complete resume here.
VanderCook College of Music is the only degree-granting institution in the United States solely dedicated to music teacher education. The mission of the college is to enrich the lives of present and future generations through the preparation of teachers in instrumental, choral, and general music disciplines. Its broad-based curriculum is designed to prepare teachers with strong character, skill in the process of teaching, and respect for the essential role of music in our culture.
