Mrs. Stokes is a proud music teacher in Hillsborough county specializing in elementary general music, and group ensembles such as chorus, percussion ensemble, and modern rock band. Teaching and making music with others is my passion in life. Her instrumental first love is the clarinet (been playing since I was 10!), but I am also a lover of guitar, ukulele, voice and piano. When not making music, my favorite things to do are read, spend time laughing with loved ones, snuggling with my kitty cats, and cheering on the Tampa Bay Lightning (GO BOLTS!). She is so excited to be a part of The Studio family and can’t wait for all of the wonderful music we will make together!
