Meet the Director

The ability to play an instrument or sing beautifully offers a lifetime of benefits. Music lessons also foster a student’s personal, social, and academic development. JBSOM has made substantial investments in our facilities and elite faculty to provide an uplifting environment designed to foster creativity, confidence and joy.

If you’ve been told you are tone deaf or uncoordinated, I’m here to inform you that everyone can improve their musical skills. As a professional musician, published songwriter and 20 year veteran Music Teacher, I've witnessed thousands of students transform their lives in ways they never imagined possible. We make it our mission to help Hendersonville students explore and develop their talents, wherever their curiosity and interests lead them.
