A lover of adventure and learning, Audrey is dedicated to helping others unlock the joy of music and the performing arts through her teaching, community engagement, and her ongoing performance projects.


Bio

Audrey began teaching individual music lessons and group classes in 2009 during her year of service with AmeriCorps at Ethos Music Center. In 2011, she began her longstanding teaching position at Cathedral Park Music (CPM), beginning with their summer musical theatre workshops, then teaching individual lessons in 2015. After the summer of 2015 the musical theatre workshops were carried over to  Cathedral Park Performing Arts Collective (CPPAC), a nonprofit music & theatre arts education organization co-founded by Audrey and her good friends and colleagues, Cristina Marino and Joseph Cirillo. Audrey is the founding director of the St. Johns Women's Choir at CPPAC and proud facilitator of the CPPAC Intergenerational Program. She is now the vocal music teacher at Roosevelt High School in North Portland and looks forward to her first year with Roosevelt’s newly reestablished choir program. After a somewhat nomadic childhood, Audrey is accustomed to new beginnings and has always found herself drawn to the welcoming winds of change. She now finds deep comfort in the roots she has grown in her community in North Portland, and is pleased to call St. Johns and the Cathedral Park Neighborhood home.

Education

Audrey holds a Master of Arts in Teaching (M.A.T.) in Music Education (2013) and a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in Music: Vocal Performance Emphasis, French Studies minor (2009), from University of Portland. She received her Orff Schulwerk Level 1 certification in 2019 from the Portland Orff Schulwerk Association, a chapter of AOSA, the American Orff Schulwerk Association. Audrey expresses deep gratitude for all the teachers who helped shape her into the performing artist she has and continues to become. Most notably, Judith Montgomery and the late Dr. Roger Doyle from her alma mater.
