Terrie Shires teaches class piano and serves as a faculty accompanist at the University of Central Arkansas. As the UCA Horn Studio accompanist, she works with students as well as visiting artists. She earned her Bachelor of Arts with a major in music and minor in mathematics from Hanover College, Indiana, and her MM in Piano Performance and Pedagogy at Northern Illinois University.
It was in Terrie's senior year at Hanover that she decided to take an art class for fun. In that class, the students were able to work with a kiln and blow glass, as well as make leaded panels, try sandblasting, and work with copper foiling. The creative visual-arts spark was ignited!
Over the years she has collected the materials and gathered more experience to work on bigger and more in-depth projects. She and husband, Brent (horn professor at UCA) attempt to balance work with family, including daughters Rebecca (16) and Rachel (13).
