Lisa Skinner       

Originally from Ohio, Lisa Skinner earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education from Bowling Green State University.  She has been a regular elementary classroom teacher in both public and private schools since 1984, with time taken off to raise her own children.  Growing up in a musical household and with a background in piano and choral music, Lisa also served as a Pre-Kindergarten through 8th grade general music teacher for eight years.  As an experienced teacher and mother of five she understands the vital importance of giving young children the opportunity to learn about and participate in the fine arts.  Lisa’s  philosophy of musical instruction is, “God gave us the wonderful gift of music which touches the heart, and when experienced at an early age, brings out the best in children.”  


Prior to relocating to the Nashville area, Lisa served as a Sunday school teacher and children’s choir director at her church.  In her spare time she enjoys studying God’s Word, reading, cooking and spending time with her children and husband of over 30 years.
