One of the best parts, for me, about working with School of Rock is getting to know local vendors. We had an incredible shoot at Hideaway Cafe. As always, the band did a great job.
Every day, I'm reminded how incredible life can be. Not only am I engaged as a music teacher, sharing my love of music and the thing that kept me alive through all those tough years of adolescence, I'm also able to capture moments of my team and these incredible kids!
This was the incredible concert at Mastry's in St Pete. What a great show!
Welcome to Florida!! (It's HOT!)
In part of my life change, I had to find a new School of Rock. After relocating to the Tampa area I quickly joined another incredible team of educators and rock stars.
My first show with this great group of people!!
Along the way, it's easy to notice the students and forget about the teachers. I felt honored to call them my team mates and below you'll find the incredible teachers who work at School of Rock Geneva and Schaumburg. Every one of them is talented beyond their years!
Spring Show - Geneva, IL
I feel so honored to have worked with these musicians for the entire season. And as some graduate and move on, I too must move on. This show was the last for a few of us teachers as things in life move and shift. But it was an incredible experience, one I will carry with me forever.
Best of Concert - Geneva, IL
What an opportunity!
I was hired, October 2019, to begin teaching young rock stars the way around a stage. And in doing so, I joined a team of incredibly talented musicians and students. I'm talking about the Geneva School of Rock. I quickly volunteered to photograph their first concert during the time when I was a teacher, the Best of Show.
Every four or so months, these kids put on an incredible rock show after working diligently during those months to perfect everything from learning their instrument and the songs to stage presence and presentation.
Music Is Important!
To me, as an educator and a musician the craft of music is so incredibly important! In the time I don't have a camera in hand, I'm generally doing or teaching music. Please enjoy the exploits of my time spent with these incredible young rock musicians!
