Alethea started with the Notable Youth Foundation as a student 8 years ago.  She performed as a vocalist and guitarist with Tiny and the Heartbeats.  They performed at Thanksgiving Point as well as several schools and community events which helped her gain confidence and learn to sing, which she hadn't expected to do.  Later she formed a band with Sarah McKenna, another student, and added to her skill and performing experience. She has gained valuable music skills and life principles from the program and is now sharing her experience and talents with younger students.  Alethea continues to perform on a regular basis and is now involved in writing and recording her own album.
 
"I have a passion for music.  I love to share all that I know with people who share my passion.  I look forward to teaching the younger children.  It's rewarding for me and I hope music becomes an important part of their life."
