“Music is the one way that I have learned to communicate when words just aren’t enough.”
Ashley Moreau has been teaching music privately for over 17 years. Her study of music began at a very young age, singing in the church where her father preached. Her formal study of music began in first grade and from there, it became her passion to not only continue developing her musical ability but also share the joy of music with others.
Teaching quickly became her passion and something she knew that she wanted to pursue. So after high school, Ashley studied music education at Westminster College in New Wilmington, PA, where she received her bachelors of music, B.M. There, she assisted in directing the Women’s Choir, served as the student coordinator for private lessons taught to community students, and was the piano accompanist for the Chamber’s Choir. After becoming certified to teach music for students in Kindergarten through 12th grade, she became the elementary music teacher for Wilmington Area School District and for seven years, taught choir and general music to students in grades K-3, and 5th and 6th grade. After the birth of her son, she and her husband moved to be closer to family and Ashley opened up a private music studio, teaching private lessons and family classes to children from infancy to five years of age.
She has been a member of the Pennsylvania Music Educators Association in the past and in her graduate education, has spent time working towards a reading specialist degree, studying the connections between music and emergent readers, creating exercises that focus on fluency of reading through singing and rhythm exercises.
She has spent time as the worship coordinator and worship leader for a church in Uniontown, PA, managing the worship bands, teaching young worship leaders, and making band arrangements for church services. She has also spent many years performing in a band, accompanying for many soloists and groups, and enjoys playing for weddings and musicals.
Ashley and her family moved to North Carolina in the summer of 2017. She is excited to continue to bring the joy of music to students in the Outer Banks. Call 252-955-0706.
