Staff of the Month- Miss Shanna

Learn more about music instructor Miss Shanna below!

Q: What made you decide to become a teacher? 

A:  I loved my piano and French horn teacher growing up and always knew I wanted to be one just like her. Plus, I’ve nannied and babysat a ton in my life and love being around kids. I have the patience and interest in it, and sharing music is one of the greatest gifts I have to give!

Q: What do you like to do in your free time?

A:  I exercise a lot (yoga, weights, running), I love word games and puzzles, and I write songs on any instrument I can find. I perform and work on building my solo music career as “Shanna in a Dress.” (

Q: Did you have a favorite teacher in your music career? Is there anything you do in your class to emulate that person?

A:  My French horn teacher Dawn just always made me feel good about what I was accomplishing musically, and cared about what was going on in the rest of my life too. I always looked forward to lessons, and I hope I can bring that to my students. 

Q: If you could teach your students a life lesson what would it be?

A:  How good you are at something RIGHT NOW doesn’t matter at all- what matters is that you take small actions to be better than you were before. Effort will ultimately beat talent. 

Q: What are you most excited for this season with MOVE by Morelli?

A:  I’m excited for the Winter Recital! I love seeing my kids perform. 

Q: If you were a flavor of ice cream what would you be and why?

A:  Chocolate chip cookie dough! BECAUSE ITS DELICIOUS AND SO AM I
