Hi there, my name is Missy! I am a board-certified and NICU certified music therapist, and classically trained musician. I have a background in providing music therapy services to pediatric and neonatal intensive care units, as well as a pediatric hospice and respite care. I have a great passion for teaching private music lessons to my beloved students! I offer an individualized approach to piano, vocal, trumpet and beginning guitar lessons for all ages. It is important to me that the student has a positive experience while refining their musical skills, in hopes they will continue as a life long musician!
I studied music therapy at University of the Pacific as a 3-year Master's student and completed my studies in December of 2018, magna cum laude. Before attending UOP, I graduated from USF with a Bachelor of Arts in music, cum laude.
When I'm not making music, I also love traveling, fishing, being outside, scuba-diving, drinking tea, perusing used book stores, thrifting and crafting, and especially laughing with my amazing husband, Nick!
