Music Education from Temple University in Philadelphia (my home town).I received a Masters in Music (Piano
Performance and Piano Pedagogy) from Oakland University. I had the fantastic

In 1999 I began teaching vocal music
for the Troy School District. In addition to teaching music, I am a
composer.My piano pieces are published
by the FJH Music Co., and I self-publish at songsforteaching.com.Over the past several years, I’ve begun
composing for film and video-games. My music is on the game “Ohno Odyssey”
which is played on a Nintendo 3DS. Check out my personal website: www.andreamoonmusic.com
I live in Bloomfield Township with
my husband Brian (trumpet player) and son, Miles. Miles attends Seaholm High.
He plays basketball at Seaholm, also plays trumpet and composes music.
My daughter, Shayna recently

MI. as an artist and game tester. My son Miles and I collaborated on composing
music for Shayna’s senior videogame project.
This will be my first time teaching
at Costello and I am looking forward to meeting all of my students and their
families.More than anything, I want to
share my love of music with students and help them discover all of the creative
ideas within them.
