In addition to her teaching, she cantors Masses at St. Thomas Aquinas Church/St. John Student Center in East Lansing, MI.

into the classroom to promote active learning, and is able to share real-world performance experiences with students. Paige is comfortable working with all ages, genders, and musical styles, and specializes in women’s music theater/classical repertoire.
