She has taught vocal music at Paseo Academy for the Performing Arts, the 18th & Vine History and Performing Arts Summer Academy, The University of Kansas, the Music Arts Institute and Penn Valley Community College.

Meeting individuals such as Clark Terry, Nancy Wilson and many others has encouraged her to continue listening and growing to become a well-rounded musician. Toni would like to send Big Love to the Musicians for giving so much of their time and extraordinary talents to make this night such a wonderful experience for all and her family for their love, encouragement and support.
