What she enjoyes most: “I love our school and its students. I have made wonderful friends with our teachers and staff members. Sharing the love of music is the best part of my job. I would really love to build our band program for future Serra Bears.”
She's an Accomplished Musician
Mrs. Taylor started playing music in childhood, and started in the school band in fifth grade playing the alto saxophone. “Maneater” was the first song she learned. During high school, she took private lessons and performed with the Concert Band, Jazz Band, Choir and Orchestra. By her senior year, she had earned full music scholarships to UNLV, where she dual majored in Music Performance and Education. Her experience at UNLV led to many opportunities including gigs with a famous musician, traveling with the Runnin' Rebels, and unforgettable performances in New York City, Washington D.C., and Hawaii. Her college Jazz Ensemble was the first ever college band to play the Village Vanguard. Mrs. Taylor plays many instruments, from flute to tuba (plus a little piano), and has been teaching private music lessons for over 25 years.
