    About Me:  

    This is my fifteen year as a music educator, and first year at Abate. Previously, I taught music, ran the music program, and was an administrator at Niagara County Community College. I also taught Pre-K to 8th grade at the former North Tonawanda Catholic School, and have taught at the University at Buffalo. In addition to teaching in Niagara Falls, I direct the chorus at Canisius College, and I play organ at St. Peter’s Church in Lewiston.

    As a musician, I regularly conduct choral music, perform organ and harpsichord recitals and have performed in orchestral settings. I once had the privilege to prepare the chorus for the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra’s performance of Bach Cantata No. 79 at Canisius College, and have sung with the Buffalo Philharmonic Chorus.
