Samantha is originally from Manheim, Pennsylvania. She graduated from Lebanon Valley College in 2015 with a Bachelor’s of Science in Music Education. Her primary instrument during her studies was tenor saxophone. After graduation, she moved to North Carolina, where she began teaching for the public school system. She has taught chorus, keyboard lab, and general music. She also has experience teaching private lessons, group lessons, and small ensembles on various instruments. Samantha is currently teaching elementary general music for the Wake County Public School System.
Samantha has always had a love for teaching and education. Before Samantha was a music teacher, she taught swim lessons and water aerobics classes to students of all ages. Throughout high school and college, Samantha participated in many music ensembles, including marching band, symphonic band, jazz band, musical theatre (cast and pit orchestra), orchestra, saxophone ensemble, and chorus. This gave her experience in a wide range of instruments and styles of music. In addition to saxophone, Samantha is accomplished at playing clarinet, piano, voice, and flute, and would be a great fit for anyone looking to take lessons in these areas. She can also teach beginning violin and ukulele.
