Taunia  Award-winning musician and high-school music teacher. Crazy dog lady. Anemic, hooked up to a machine a lot. 😀 Music heals, helps, and gives us hope! 🎶

Happy 72nd birthday, Dad!! All 15 of us took over a restaurant tonight to celebrate my pops. He’ll be the first to tell you there’s not a wrinkle on his face. lol #72yearsyoung #birthday #family #father #dad #divataunia #music #musician #musicteacher

Look what I got today! Thanks to my friend @everyoneinthekitchen who referred me to her friend who was donating this beautiful instrument! I now have this gorgeous upright in my living room,and it’s SO NICE to be playing on weighted keys again!!! Huge thanks to Laurie and Laurie for the music love! 🎶 #divataunia #music #musician #musicteacher #piano #upright #kimballpiano #kimballupright

THIS! Another reason I LOVE #mrsbettybowers on Twitter. Being a girl isn't weak, insecure, or any other negative words you'd only use to describe the female gender. I teach young women every day and they are talented, inquisitive, intelligent, compassionate, kind, and STRONG.

Today was @the mask you wear” activity day at work. Apparently the mask I wear is extra creepy. #divataunia #Music #musician #musicteacher #aphmusic #mask #maskiwear #academyatpenguinhall

Spent the day making music with my good friend @michaelbilotta_music! I suggested doing a quick acoustic number and he wasn’t having it. We laid down all of these tracks on #Garageband. He played bass, guitar, did the drums and I played piano and sang the lead and harmonies. Old school soul, yo! #sade #sweetesttaboo #divataunia #michaelbilotta #music #musician #recording #singing #guitar #bass #vocals #studio #80s #80smusic #talentmobapp @talentmobapp @sade @sadeadu_

Just finished setting up my room today for the start of classes next week. My colleague Kevin (theatre) and I are sharing a room - which makes sense because we collaborate often and share a lot of the same students. We split the room in half and each got a bookshelf and a (huge!) closet. The room has a gorgeous, large circle window and lots of natural lighting. Most of my music classes will be there (Music Theory/Ear Training/Chorus/All Ensembles), with only my #Choreography class meeting in the fitness room. Great start to a new #schoolyear. Let's make some #music! #divataunia #music #musicteacher #aphmusic #academyatpenguinhall #chorus #band #acappella #therubyslipper #vocaljazz #bucketband #band #rockband #musictheory #solfege #eartraining

"If you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies only in yourself...When it comes your time to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with the fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song and die like a hero going home." - Senator John McCain. Today America lost a great hero. People from both sides of the aisle admired him, despite conflicting politics. He carried himself with honor and integrity, and is a reminder to all of us of how great we can be. #RIP Senator. #johnmccain #senatorjohnmccain #americanhero #pow #veterans #divataunia #music #musician #musicteacher

Just wrapped up my first week of professional development back at school at The Academy at Penguin Hall. Our President, Molly Martins, and the Admin team arranged for us to finish out the week with a SUPER-FUN team-building event at Escape This Live - Beverly, MA. We broke off into three separate teams escaping rooms (my team won! Whoo hoo!) and it was a hilarious and awesome way to end the week.

I'm just so thankful to work at such an amazing place, teaching alongside such talented, kind, compassionate and insanely funny people. Not only do I get to go to work every day and do what I love, but I get to do it with people that I really love too. Life is good! :) #divataunia #music #musicteacher #musician #teambuilding #colleagues #work #workfriends #aph #aphmusic
