Many of our students choose to study with a private voice teacher. Tidwell is lucky to have 3 excellent voice teachers who come during or after school. We have many openings, so please submit the form below.

Dear Voice Students and Parents,

Please let me say how excited I am to be in my 4th year at TMS! It is such a blessing for me to work with students who really want to learn and improve on their gift of their voice and who share a love of music.

Students of mine will participate in a Christmas recital, Solo-N-Ensemble in the spring, and an end of the year recital.

*I also want to encourage 7th and 8th grade students to prepare to try out for the All-Region choir in October. It’s an educational/confidence building experience and it’s an honor to make this choir that performs in November.

My experience and training……

I obtained my Bachelor’s Degree in Music (voice major/piano minor) from Abilene Christian University.

After receiving my Music degree in ‘93, I taught voice lessons at N. Garland H.S., Lakeview Centennial H.S and at Lyles M.S. in Garland, Tx for many years. Then my family relocated to North Carolina with my husband’s job where I taught elementary music and private piano at Providence Christian School in Charlotte as the public schools did not have the music enrichment programs.

I personally took voice lessons from the age of 12 yrs. old through college and went to college on voice scholarships at both Richland Community College and then ACU (I was the only voice student asked to teach voice at Richland Community College). I have performed in many musicals, operas and in college, traveled with an a cappella group all over the U.S. and Canada. I have had 8+ years of private piano instruction.

I was ranked 4th in the state of Texas as a soprano my senior year in high school where I performed with the All-State Choir in San Antonio. (Students, this is such an incredible experience and honor for you and your school so please let me encourage you to try out for this every year in high school as the competition is fierce and each year builds more confidence with the try-out process)

On the personal side…

My husband and I have been married 25 yrs. and we have two daughters, Savannah and Stella. Savannah just graduated with her Bachelor’s in Radiological Sciences and is working full-time at Medical City-Fort Worth. She is getting married this October!

Stella is in the 11th grade at Keller HS and is in Varsity choir and Show Choir.

We attend The Hills Church-Southlake Campus where I currently assist in leading worship on the instrumental praise teams and have directed our children’s musical.
