Get to know Lisa Cripe

Music has played an essential role throughout my life. I began piano and dance lessons at age 5, started singing in the church choir at age 10, and played French Horn in the school band throughout junior and senior high school. I went to college to study the art of piano teaching, and there developed a love for organ, choral, and symphonic music literature. Ever since, I have been teaching, singing, playing, accompanying, and directing or participating in vocal or handbell choirs, and volunteering for performing arts organizations on the side. Most recently I have been trained, certified, and licensed as a Musikgarten Early Childhood Music and Movement teacher.
