If there’s no decent anthem, write one yourself!
Adjunct Faculty, Music

I am a music adjunct faculty member at Jamestown Community College. At JCC, I direct the vocal jazz ensemble and am an accompanist for the JCC chorus. I also teach piano classes.

I have been fortunate to be quite active in WNY as a musician. In addition to serving as Music Director (“Maker of Joyful Noise”) for Gloria Dei church, I teach piano at Infinity and privately, accompany the JCC choir, and play with JCC ensembles and the Jamestown Municipal Band. I have been a member of the award-winning Ladies First Big Band Jazz since 2004. I have also been active with local theatres on stage, backstage and in the pit, and have co-authored several plays and musicals with the youth theatre group TOYA. I have written sacred songs, including a Mass for St. Cecilia (motto – if there’s no decent anthem, write one yourself!).
