This website is a sample of some of the accomplishments of Patricia Schexnyder Wilthew. Her passion for the arts was planted at the age of three, where she performed a ballet solo to Beethoven’s Minuet in G. Through her adolescent years, she continued to perform dance, singing, piano, and guitar with traveling talent troupes, then went on to become a family-builder. Many years later, after dabbling in professional singing and recording commercials with jazz clarinetist Pete Fountain, she began studying composition with Dr. Adolphus C. Hailstork at Norfolk State University and Old Dominion University. She has now branched out to writing books, producing albums, promoting patriotism, as well as teaching every grade level from Montessori to Regent University.
