Cayla started out as a Performance Academy student in 2014. She came to us as an advanced piano and voice student. It was instantly obvious that her talents and maturity level were well beyond her years and she possessed all the characteristics we look for in an instructor. We invited Cayla to join our staff in 2016 as a voice, piano, guitar, and ukulele instructor. Cayla studied under and was mentored by Chelsea Pilgrim. She graduated from the McKinney Area Christian Homeschooler program where she was a “Green Cord” recipient for her countless hours of volunteer work in the community. Cayla attended and graduated from The College at Church Eleven32 and The Church Eleven32 School of Ministry.

Cayla is no stranger to live performance. She is an accomplished singer songwriter that has been mesmerizing audiences since the age of 13 at local venues and festivals in Collin County. Cayla is also currently a music worship leader at Church Eleven32 in Allen where she released her debut album “Goodness” in 2022.


Cayla’s works well with students ages 8 to 18. Her enthusiastic and passionate approach to teaching creates an atmosphere of motivation and confidence for her students. Cayla can teach beginning to advanced piano, beginning to intermediate voice, and beginning guitar and ukulele. She is also an excellent instructor for composition and songwriting.


Cayla offers lessons Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays.
