Hope graduated from the Marysville Charter Academy for the Arts with a focus in musical theatre performance, then studied Music History and Choral Performance at the Conservatory of Music at University of the Pacific. Hope also brings a background in acute patient care, often sharing in music to connect with patients.
When Hope plans each music lesson, she focuses heavily on Music Theory, instructional scaffolding, and ongoing student logs to help nurture lifelong learners.
However, during lessons, Hope focuses more on creating a fun and supportive environment, where each student can feel safe to try, make mistakes, and grow. Hope is committed to the belief that each music student is already enough, and is also able to learn something new if they’re open to it.
