About Me

Hi everyone, my name is Charlene! Music has been, and always will be, a huge part of my life. I started playing trumpet at age nine and haven't stopped since then. While trumpet has always been my main instrument, I briefly took guitar lessons in middle school. In high school I realized that my true passion was playing trumpet, so I started taking lessons for that instead.

I earned my Bachelor's degree from Grand Valley State University in Western Michigan. I then continued my education and earned my Master of Music degree from the University of Delaware in trumpet performance. Since I finished school I have been performing extensively with various community orchestras, pit orchestras, and churches. 

I have been so lucky to have music in my life. Learning music at a young age and taking lessons has set me up for success in life with a hardworking attitude, goal-setting, and learning how to connect to other people with more than just words. My musical endeavors have taken me to many great places, and allowed me to meet many great people. 

I am so excited to be working at Music & Arts, where I can share this passion with so many people, and encourage them down the same path.
