Monique graduated from Azusa Pacific University in Southern California with a B.A. in Music and an M.A. in Christian Worship Leadership. She fell in love with music as a young child and grew up dancing, playing piano and singing in choirs. She has directed seasonal choirs and worked with both adult and youth vocalists over the past several years. In addition to teaching music, she has also enjoyed working for a non-profit organization in which she oversaws the educational development of children at risk.
enjoys teaching because she loves encouraging others and sharing the
music. She believes that anyone can learn how to sing well - some
people just need more
assistance and practice along the way than others. :o). In addition to teaching voice, piano and keyboard groups, Monique recently completed her training to teach Early Music Awareness and enjoys keeping music exciting for the youngest learners.
Monique is married with young daughter Natalie, and when she's not singing or playing the piano, she loves to read, travel, enjoy the outdoors and sample food from around the world with her husband.
