As long as she can remember, Emery has always loved singing and working with children. She began learning violin as a child growing up in the midwest and is thrilled to have the opportunity to combine her passions for music and kids at The Music Place.

She met her engineer husband at Bethel School of ministry and upon graduation, they felt led to come to San Jose where one of our board members encouraged her to apply for a position at The Music Place. Having formerly worked with very young children as well as having been a Registered Behavioral Technician, (ABA therapist), Emery was a natural candidate to be trained to teach Early Music Awareness in addition to violin. She trained under Becky Beaudoin, a Music Place master teacher, for EMA and Moses Lam for violin, completing her training in late 2022. 

Both Emery and her husband Atish are brilliant, enthusiastic and fun! In addition to teaching, Emery has also joined our admin team to oversee social media marketing. (NOTE: her husband Atish is a welcome addition as a tech support engineer as well!)

Emery's hobbies are drawing, outdoor activitites and meeting new people!
