Jess Walls has been passionate about music her entire life. In her youth, she performed with the Texas Girls Choir, and was a part of the TPSMEA All-State and All-Region choirs.
As an adult, Mrs. Walls has performed with the Dallas Opera Chorus, The Dallas Pops Symphony Chorus, and Schola Cantorum of Texas. She is a coloratura soprano, and enjoys singing Soprano 2 in choir for the more challenging sightreading.
Her teaching career has included directing at the middle school and intermediate school levels, teaching general music at a Montessori school, and teaching private voice lessons at the middle school and high school levels.
In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her husband, their 3 children, and their 3 dogs. She has a passion for health and nutrition, and has recently begun powerlifting.
Vicki Keller has her Masters of Music Education from the University of Texas at Arlington and her Bachelor of Music Education Degree in voice and a minor in performance from Eastern Michigan University. She is retired from Arlington ISD where she was a Fine Arts Administrator for 10 years, a junior high choral director for 6 years, and an elementary music teacher for 11 years. Vicki was selected by the Texas State Board of Education as a panel member to write the MUSIC TEKS that are presently used in every classroom in Texas. She is presently an adjunct professor at UT Arlington as a music education supervisor for choral student teachers. Vicki has also been a clinician and judge for choirs throughout the state. She has enjoyed singing throughout the United States as well as in Europe. Teaching students to sing has brought her many joys throughout her career and teaching private voice lessons in retirement has proved to be her new found love.
