Welcome to music class! My name is Mrs. Erica Smith. I began my life-long love of music at age six during class piano lessons. My desire to be a music teacher has never wavered since then. I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Music Education from Piedmont International University (now Carolina University) in Winston-Salem, NC. I have taught private piano lessons as well as church and school choirs. I strive to teach my students the importance of music in relation to worshiping God.
My husband, Nathan, and I minister together as the music/childrens' minister (Nathan) and pianist (me) at Southside Baptist Church in Elm City. We have two wonderful kids, ages 5 and 2.
My favorite Bible passage is Psalm 25:4-5: "Make me to know your ways, O Lord; teach me your paths. Lead me in your truth and teach me, for you are the God of my salvation; for you I wait all the day long."
