Dear Mr. Goforth,

Thank you so very much for coming to this page.  I have listed quite a few videos for you to watch, but I wanted you to have a very well-rounded view of what I have done and what I would like to do.  After watching the arts videos below, you can click on the first four links of the website, to your left, to see videos of my professional speaking engagements.  Also, you can click on the last link on the left (classes) for a listing of classes that I have taught and would like to teach in Springville.  When you click on the name of each class, a description of that class will appear.  Then just hit the back button to go back to the list.  Thanks again!  Blessings to you, Rita

This is my most requested song, Amazing Grace (contemporary)

Westbrook Christian School.  I organized and directed the Westbrook Show Choir for five years.  This was the Show Choir at John Croyle's christian school in Rainbow City.  I taught there for five years.  I also taught at both Big Oak Girl's Ranch in Springville and Big Oak Boy's Ranch in Glencoe.  You will see that these selections include not only singing, but drama and theatre as well.

Southside High School Choir and Drama Team.  I taught at Southside High School (public school in Etowah County) for three years.  These videos include some very interesting displays of music, drama and theatre.  The "Down on the Farm" videos are all country music whereas the "Grease" videos are from a full, live production of the movie, "Grease!"

My private high school show choir, Etowah Live!  This was a private show choir from my studio.  Students paid $250 per semester to be a member of this choir.  We did a wide variety of music all the way from foreign language for Carnegie Hall to country!  These selections are christian based showing some great choreography.
