I have been making music for as long as I can remember, but I seriously began studying it in 1998. I have been teaching piano, voice, and general music theory since 2008, and I hold a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Music Composition from the College of Idaho. Currently, I compose, teach, and perform music in Idaho, and I just earned my Master of Fine Arts in Music Composition through Vermont College of Fine Arts’ low-residency program.
My musical focus is to glorify God in everything that I do: teaching, performing, composing, etc. and to use my skills to point people to Jesus as their Savior. Through teaching, I enjoy showing God’s sweet and tough love to my students as they struggle with, but eventually excel in, the disciplines of music. Through performing, I show, both aurally and visually, the feelings that God has given to us and how He has touched my heart to save me with His unconditional love. Through composing, I like to show God’s character, human nature, and their relationships to each other through music, in combination with other art forms, such as storytelling, media, dance, theater, film, etc.
