Ann M

Ms. Ann began her musical journey technically before she learned how to read, tapping out the theme songs from the favorite movies of her childhood on the miniature electric piano her parents purchased for her. Shortly thereafter, she began studying piano in earnest at age five, and later chose to begin studying the violin at age 10. Over the years, Ann has performed in chamber ensembles, in university orchestras, and in community ensembles. With each experience, as player, as conductor, and as instructor she has gained a deeper appreciation for the joy of sharing music with others. Although she is currently earning a doctorate in microbiology, her love of playing music and teaching music has never dimmed, and she is excited about working with the students of the Allegro Pearland Academy of Music as they embark on their journeys toward becoming musicians.
