NSMS is pleased to welcome Ms. Denise Isaac to the faculty!
Ms. Isaac writes, "Teaching is one of the things that fuels me as a person. I consider it a privilege to be able to be the conduit for shaping the minds of the future through music."
Denise Isaac holds a Master’s Degree from Westminster Choir College, where she studied with Ingrid Clarfield, and a Bachelor of Music from Moravian University in Bethlehem, PA. Ms. Isaac taught elementary school for several years in Trinidad and Tobago, her native country. She worked with the Eastern West Indies Province of the Moravian Church, serving as the Minister of Music. One of her responsibilities included coordinating choral seminars focused on the important role of the choir in leading the congregation in worship.
Prior to joining the faculty, Ms. Isaac worked with a non-denominational church with a K-12 academy where she was responsible for preparing students to meet rigorous academic standards. The program included specialty areas such as piano skills and curricula, and primarily focused on musical training and preparation. In 2020, Ms. Isaac completed the Comprehensive Practical Teaching Program through the Frances Clark Center at NSMS.
Teaching is Ms. Isaac’s life goal, her passion, and her calling. She believes that teachers have the huge responsibility of shaping and molding the minds of the next generation, especially through the study of music. She is a success-driven educator with more than 35 years of experience, and a track record of developing an intuitive connection with students, tuning into their specific learning needs. In her spare time, Ms. Isaac is an avid runner, and enjoys baking and cooking to support her ketogenic lifestyle.
