Dee has extensive experience in all facets of music instruction and performance, along with dance and creative dramatics.
At the Patel Conservatory, she directed and conducted musicals such as Oklahoma!, Music Man, Jr., and Suessical Jr. along with developing course programs and finding time to coordinate outreach efforts within the Tampa community.
