Most Memorable CCAC Experience

My most memorable experiences at CCAC have involved student performances. Whether a student is already a seasoned performer or a novice stepping on stage for the first time, it is always a pleasure to see them share their talents and passion for performing.


Why I Teach What I Teach

I feel strongly that all art, including music, is an essential part of the human experience. I consider music a gift, and I wish to share that gift with those around me. Whether I am performing or teaching music, I am participating in sharing music with others.


Something People Might Not Know About Me

I have a long history with CCAC, beginning as a student taking CCAC classes while still in high school. At that time, multiple family members were also CCAC students, each at different stages in their lives. After graduating from high school, I continued at CCAC and completed my associate degree before moving on to pursue my bachelor's and graduate degrees. My family members and I know firsthand the benefits of a CCAC education.
