Erin grew up with a love for music. She began singing as soon as she could talk, and started piano lessons at age 6. Erin was fortunate to sing under the direction of Marcia Patton while at Kelly Walsh High School and also studied with Dr.Pat Patton at Casper College.  She spent a year singing with the University of Wyoming Collegiate Chorale, Vocal Jazz Ensemble and accompanying the UW Centennial Singers before traveling to Lincoln, NE where she earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Music Education as well as a Bachelor’s Degree in Piano Pedagogy from Union College. She is currently pursuing her Master of Music Education degree from Northern State University. Erin taught elementary music, choral and instrumental music in Midwest for five years, and is now in her ninth year at Dean Morgan Middle School where she teaches choir, piano and musical theater. Erin has always been active with music ministry in her church. She has been a soprano soloist for Handel’s Messiah as well as Rutter’s Mass of the Children, and was a frequent soloist with Alla Breve. She has a passion for music as well as for teaching, and she loves participating in and contributing to the music community throughout Wyoming.
