Meet Your Performing Arts Teachers
We are so pleased to have a dynamic Performing Arts program at Rio Vista Middle School. Music Directors’ office hours are school days 8:30-9:30 and 3:45-4:15 at Rio Vista, and other times by appointment.
My love for music started in the 6th grade when I started playing the French horn at Balboa Middle School in Ventura. I have played the Horn for 25 years now in a multitude of different ensemble types. I have played in wind ensembles, orchestras, recording groups, and chamber music groups. I have been a public school music teacher for 12 years now, teaching in various school districts on the west coast. I have a deep appreciation for the art of making music. I love music and I hope this love transcribes into my teaching in order to infuse the same love for the subject into my students.
