Leigh received her Bachelor of Music Education at Winthrop University and completed Orff Levels I and II at the University of Memphis. She grew up surrounded by music and began playing flute at a young age, followed by playing in band every year until after college. Leigh discovered Orff music while at Winthrop, and found her calling teaching music to young children.

Leigh taught flute lessons throughout college and for several years after to middle school students. She also taught Orff Music in Memphis City Schools and taught children’s choirs for 20 years in her church. She’s been a preschool teacher for 13 years where she enjoys incorporating music into the classroom.
