Musical experience:

before I got hired by World of Music, located in Harker Heights, in 2018 and Academie Musique in 2019.
● During my time at UNT, I recently completed my clinical teaching in the Fall semester of 2023 in Prosper ISD in
North Texas. I taught with the middle and high school orchestra’s in the school district. I have also worked with
their String Project group, my last two semesters before clinical teaching. I had to teach a small group of
