    (Artists in Residence 2021-2022)

    Being an Artist in Residence with the RED School of music was a very unique and exciting opportunity, and I learned so much about running a music studio, recruiting students, and teaching! Working so closely with experienced professionals in the field was an eye-opening and invaluable experience. My favorite thing about the program was getting a chance to explore and make connections in a new community. I have made wonderful and life-changing connections and experiences in Bellefontaine that I never would have expected. I also loved getting the chance to plan and put on our own recitals in Bellefontaine and watching our students (many of whom had very little experience performing) light up in front of an audience!

    The artist in residency was a unique and formative experience! I really felt I was putting on the shoes of a studio owner, while being mentored on entrepreneurial aspects behind the scenes. It was great to be in a new town and create foundational relationships with families and community members.
