Sharon Walker bio

Sharon Walker grew up in Lombard, Illinois and received her BA in Music Education at Eastern Illinois University. She began playing piano at the age of eight (8), and added Flute and Clarinet one year after that. She did not always feel that band was the right fit for her for many years, but began to find her niche and love of band her freshman year of high school. Her band directors inspired her to begin to play competitively, as well as consider a formal education to one day to become a teacher herself. Sharon participated in multiple ensembles while at Eastern, including Wind Symphony, Orchestra, Marching Band, Woodwind Quintet and Flute Choir, holding many leadership roles within each ensemble. She is also a a proud member of Kappa Kappa Psi, National Honorary Band Fraternity, holding executive positions both locally and nationally. Sharon’s highlight of her collegiate career was being able to travel to Colorado Springs to perform with the National Intercollegiate Band in 2011, and being Drum Major her junior year in college. Sharon has experience working with students ranging from five (5) years old to senior year in high school. Her greatest experiences working as an educator so far is watching her students grow, both academically and emotionally. In her spare time, Sharon enjoys baking, video games, scrap booking, traveling, and reading. She also enjoys listening to a wide variety of music, but has a particular soft spot for disco and anything Disney. Sharon is excited to continue teaching with her third year working for Music Education Services.
