Two new music instructors have joined North Valley Music School, Lisa Screeton and Miriam Genheimer.

A native of Arkansas, Screeton has a background in musical theatre, opera, choral conducting and touring. She received her bachelor’s in music history with a minor in honors vocal performance from the University of Central Arkansas where she was named outstanding University Student in 1998. She was a Harry S. Truman Scholar at Harvard's Kennedy School where she received a master's degree and received the Bayard H. Friedman Hummer Hero Award for excellence in music teaching from the Fort Worth Symphony. Screeton will begin teaching piano and voice at NVMS this fall.

Genheimer grew up in a small Minnesota town where creative arts were an essential part of her everyday life. From private lessons, ensemble participation, theatre, improv, and fiddling, pursuing the arts has been a lifelong endeavor. As a young musician, she participated in Minnesota Youth Symphonies and programs at the MacPhail Center for Music. Miriam studied violin at Bethel University, was first violin in the Minnesota Civic Orchestra, and currently plays with Glacier Symphony. Genheimer will begin teaching violin at NVMS this Fall.
