Reblog: Think of Me // Performance Video


Hello everyone! Just wanted to share a performance video with you right quick– this was from a performance last month at the Restoration Church in Alpharetta, Georgia. I have been singing this piece for a long time; before I even started being trained vocally, actually– and it’s always been one of my favorites, along with […]

I’m back! Yes– I admit it– I am probably the #1 worst blogger you follow. THANKS FOR FOLLOWING ME ANYWAY! I really do love blogging, but I have been *so* busy with my new job. Which is a good thing– I love my job! But it does leave considerably less time for blogging.

The subject of the post today is actually related to my job as a music teacher– I have had a few different people tell me lately that I should build a website for myself as a private teacher, so this past week, I did just that! And I can’t wait to hear what you think of it!

Here is the link to my new website! It would absolutely make my day if you followed it, and let me know in the comments below what you think of it!!


I can’t wait to hear your thoughts!

With love ’till next time!

How to tune your violin // My first YouTube video!


Hi everyone! The fine arts school that I teach at requested that I make a “How to tune your violin” video, and so I now have a video of me on YouTube– the first ever! Not that big a deal I guess, but it’s kind of exciting…is that weird, lol? Anywho, I thought I’d pop in and post it on the ol’ blog, and see what you all think! It would be great if you want to give it a thumbs up, as well! 💕🎻

Looking forward to hearing your thoughts! I’m always super nervous in front of cameras so… hopefully it doesn’t show too much. 🤪

Till next time!

Here come the concert photos and videos! *Dun Dun Dun!* Unfortunately the building we ended up performing in was… rather ugly, so these photos aren’t very aesthetic. But hey! Hopefully you enjoy them anyway. 😜

Me, directing my WONDERFUL Middle School Strings class! They did so well.
The beautiful ballet class, directed by my best friend Bekah (pictured in ‘Coffee Before the Concert’)
A *very* blurry photo of me dancing/singing with the show choir! We were very short on guys this year, so some of us girls danced together. 😜 It was still fun though, because this lovely you lady is one of my good friends.
The show choir, taking a bow! Can you find me? 😋

Someone got a video of the show choir performance! It’s not perfect…at all…but it was such fun!


I hope you all enjoyed all of this! Comment on which is your favorite photo! Your comments make my day!


With love,

Flute is Hard.


So I’m trying to learn to play the flute. And I’m having such a hard time of it!! Is that normal?? Do any of you play flute and have any tips? I can’t even play a scale yet– and I can’t always get the right sound out of the flute either!

Music Monday AGAIN!! // O mio babbino caro // *with video*


I FINALLY GOT IT UPLOADED!  Like I mentioned in today’s first music Monday post, I’ve been trying upload this video to my blog all day, but I was continually prevented by my obnoxiously slow internet. But here at last, is my ‘O mio babbino caro’ cover! This is the first video cover I’ve ever done on my blog,  so I can’t wait to hear your thoughts!  Do bear in mind though– I stupidly did not warm up before making this video, and also its not the best audio. (#musicianexcuses 😜).

So without further ado– here ’tis!!

Did you enjoy it? Tell me your thoughts in the comments below!

Till next time!
