Miss Shannon- Teacher, Vocalist, Pianist, Guitarist
Shannon knew from a young age that music is what she wanted to be doing with her life. She began by learning piano and singing and then later learned how to play guitar. All of these things added to her love of music and her desire to share that love with others. With 15 years of teaching private lessons on the side, Shannon decided to make her dream a reality and opened her own business. In the heart of downtown Batesville, Miss Shannon’s music studio made quite an impact. It turned out that this love of music was contagious and Batesville (and surrounding areas) had caught the bug. Now the studio has expanded to 6 teaching rooms and has 9 teachers employed teaching piano, voice, guitar, ukulele, violin, drums and MusikGarten. MusikGarten is Shannon’s true passion as it allows her to teach group classes of babies through 5 year olds about music and to help instill a love of music in their hearts from an early age. The studio now has nearly 300 students a week coming in for private lesssons or MusikGarten classes. Shannon also organizes a number of community musical events every year including Miss Shannon’s Concert in the Alley, Miss Shannon’s Summer Vocal Camp, end of semester recitals, Batesville’s Music and Arts Festival, and many more. Shannon hopes her passion will inspire people to enjoy and love music for years to come.
