I am fairly new to the Pilsen staff. I started teaching music here in October, 2014. I've always had a strong love for music. I started studying guitar at the age of five and piano at seven. This led, naturally I believe, to a desire to share this wonderful art form with others. I have a B.A. in Music from Elmhurst College and a M.A. in Teaching from National-Louis University. I've also spent time studying Music Theory and Musicology at The University of Arizona.
