Sholeen Wuest

    Like so many of our music students, Sholeen Wuest grew up in a musical family and joined every band, orchestra, ensemble, and choir she could. She studied at Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio majoring in music education and focusing on personal ambitions. It was about that time that Jesus Christ became her personal Lord and Savior and her focus shifted from serving herself to serving Him. And so, instead of playing in the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra and directing children in a public school band, she became the music director of a church where she led the congregation in praise and worship and directed a variety of musical groups. A few years after Sholeen and her husband, Mike, moved to Tennessee, she found herself once again leading praise and worship for a church in Franklin and working on music programs with the children. Her oldest daughter, Hannah, joined Nashville Notes in 2000 and Sholeen became a section leader 2 years later.  As her other 3 children joined the band, she continued serving as Beginner Band director for 3 years before becoming director of Nashville Notes in 2008 and directing the Symphonic Band.   Her greatest joy (besides her grandchildren!) is to serve the families at Nashville Notes!

Amy VanAuken

Amy is a Kentucky native and homeschool mom to two Nashville Notes students.  She graduated from Campbellsville University with a degree in Sports Medicine and Exercise Science, and later went back to school to become a Registered Nurse.  Music was very important to Amy growing up where she focused on singing in the choir, playing the French horn, and learning a few chords on the guitar.  Her role at Nashville Notes will consist of loving on the students, assisting with administrative needs, and putting bandaids on skinned knees when needed.  Her favorite things include listening to her family play their instruments, watching them play sports, and participating in an adult ballet class after having never danced until recently.  She is married to Jason, and as a family, they enjoy being active in their church, making up silly songs, and eating yummy meals. 




Meagan Roberts

Meagan has been a presence at Nashville Notes for the last 20 years, first as a student, and then serving in various capacities.  After attending Summit Student Conference Camp, a 2 week intensive study of worldviews, she went on to further her education in worldviews and their effect on culture and the arts, at Bryan College. Her love of cultures and history led her to work as a historical interpreter at Carnton and Carter House for several years. At the same time, she held an internship for an event planning in Nashville.  After the internship Meagan worked at The Battle of Franklin Trust for 10 years as their wedding and event planner, and transitioned to gift shop managing and product design. 


She currently serves Nashville Notes as the bookkeeper and general misc. helper. Outside of her duties at Nashville Notes, you’ll most likely find her watching the Greatest British Baking Show while baking in her kitchen, or playing trains with her young boys, and quoting The Little Engine That Could from memory.  Her musical outlets are satisfied through her participation in her church choir and joining her son in his Music Play class with RaeAnna Goss at NN.  Occasionally, during naps and waiting for the dryer to buzz, she enjoys playing the piano.  Her favorite style of music is “everything except hard rock”.
