Hello and welcome to the St. Thomas Music Page. I am so grateful to teach at St. Thomas. Please feel free to send me an email and introduce yourself. I will do my best to reply within 24 hours.

I am from Tolono, Illinois. I graduated from Unity in 2003 and studied music at Parkland College and Illinois State University. I play the saxophone, trumpet, and guitar and also sing for my church.
