Valencia C. Giles, Director & Owner
At the age of 7 my dad gave me my first piano. I was so excited and enjoyed piano lessons like a little girl with a brand new doll. Little did I know the impact this gift would have on my life. My elementary years were filled with music. By middle school my second choice of instrument was the flute. Looking back, I realized that each band director in middle school, high school and college appointed me as the directors assistant. This path led me to the position I have today. As the Director of LSSM, I find that my passion for teaching, assisting and helping students has only grown. I love what I do and I have a vision for every student who walks in the door. I am committed to making sure that their musical beginning is filled with fun, excitement, great instruction and care. I am committed to hiring only the teachers that are committed to the same goals of excellence. Graduating with honors from Alabama A&M University with a double major in flute and piano was intense and rewarding. I am a member of the Music Teachers National Association (MTNA). I am the author of "Beaker's House of Music"-note theory curriculum; recording artist for kids, and composer. Also, I am a wife & mother of 3 wonderful children.
