Hi There!

My name is Zoë.  

Music has been a central part of my life for as long as I can remember, from learning piano at age 5 to performing as a teen soloist in high school through young adulthood while studying at Berklee College of Music in Boston. 

While at Berklee, I became involved in a multitude of ensembles to be exposed to and learn about various genres and areas of music. From Celtic Ensemble, Baroque Ensemble, and the Berklee Background Singers Group, I loved being involved in and collaborating with the talented musicians around me. I majored in Professional Music and Music Education with a mission to bring music into to my home community with a kind, adaptable, and knowledgable approach.
