Achievements

Every year my students participate in a variety of competitive events - national and international competitions, state auditions, local music festivals, offered through MTAC, CAPMT/MTNA, CMTAC and other professional music organizations.

This is quite stressful and sometimes intimidating experience for children, but their hard work, passion and perseverance lead them to great satisfaction and much deserved awards.

Please join me in recognition of their accomplishments.
