Carissa Thompson – Piano

Iʼve been teaching piano since 2014. My love for music began at a very young age sitting at the piano with my Grandmother singing to songs from Annie. After teaching preschool, my dear friend Jenny James encouraged me to take my love for music and open a studio of my own. I am married to my high school sweetheart and have 3 boys: Jackson, Tate, and Wyatt. I am excited and grateful to be apart of Legacy Music Studio.

Amanda Duke – Piano

I began studying piano in 2008. Since then, I have expanded my horizons with learning chord charts, playing in various ensembles, and playing saxophone in the Marcus Band. Since 2010, I have had the opportunity to serve with kids in the AWANA’s program and currently dedicate my time to the Valley Creek Church Kid’s ministry. I decided to combine my love for music and working with children by helping kids take their next step in music. I began teaching in the 2017-18 school year and have taught various piano camps throughout the summer. I am continuing to pursue music at Southern Methodist University, while also studying a double major in Financial Consulting and Economics.

Kerry Hillier – Voice

I have always loved music, especially singing! I officially started my career path by pursuing a BA in Vocal Performance. Shortly after graduating in 2003, I began as a private voice instructor. Since 2007, I have had the opportunity to serve as a worship leader at Valley Creek Church. In 2009, I began building the choir program at Coram Deo Academy. In the past 8 years, the program has grown by 70 students for a total of 4 choirs across two campuses who have brought home numerous Region & State level awards. It is a passion of mine to share the joy of music with my students and help them find their own unique voice. I teach in a variety of styles and can help you achieve success in Pop/Rock, Broadway or Classical genres. My husband, Jason, and I live in Highland Village with our daughters, Anna and Naomi.

Charles Tobias- Guitar

After attending Berklee College of Music, I knew the greatest place to implement what I’ve learned would be teaching. For over 10 years, I’ve invested my time in learning and mastering instruments such as electric, acoustic, and bass guitar. In recent years, I’ve had the privilege of developing others at Valley Creek Church as they take their next step into serving on our various worship teams. During this time I have also recorded with multiple bands. No matter the genre or your level of playing, it would be my privilege to invest in your future and passion for music.

Josh Wright – Voice

It is my privilege and honor to help my generation and the next take next steps in their gifts of vocal performance, leading and belief in themselves. Prior to college, I trained vocally for 7 and a half years within multiple music styles (classical, broadway, contemporary worship, gospel/soul). After graduating from Christ For The Nations Institute in 2015 with a degree in Worship & Technical Arts, I have since served as a coordinator within childcare (Kid Keepers) and currently serve on staff as the worship coordinator at Valley Creek Church. Whether you’ve been singing for years or just beginning, I want to help you master basic technique and challenge you to take risks by trying new things. More than that, I want to build relationship and encourage you that nothing is truly impossible when you invest your time and believe in yourself.
