Emily East

Music Teacher & Private Piano, Vocal & Guitar Instructor


"I have the opportunity to sow into the next generation of musicians, worship leaders, and songwriters. God is the original creative, He is the creator! I teach music because I believe it is one of the few things He’s given us, where our entire body, soul and spirit can connect with Him and those in need of Him. I am constantly reminded to spur my students forward, knowing God is not a respecter of persons but uses the young and old to build His Kingdom here on earth."

“The attitude of the entire staff demonstrates God’s love. We are all willing to help each other any time it is needed. Being able to teach sacred songs all year around and especially at Thanksgiving and Christmas is a joy to me.”
