Mrs. Sandy Shelley, Private Vocal Instructor, Wylie East HS

Sandy Shelley taught middle school choirs for over 30 years. She earned her Bachelor of Music degree at Texas State University in San Marcos and her Master of Music Education at the University of North Texas in Denton. Sandy’s choirs won many awards at UIL Contest, Hurricane Harbor Choral Competition, and Hawaiian Falls Choral Competition. Her groups were invited to perform at the Texas Music Educators Association convention in 2002 and 2006. Sandy retired from public school teaching in 2017.


Since retiring, Sandy works most days tutoring choir students. She teaches voice lessons at Wylie East High School in Wylie ISD, where she has helped to guide multiple students in the Texas All-State process and choirs. She also coaches and accompanies singers at several other schools in the area. She is active as a clinician, adjudicator, and accompanist, and is a member of TMEA and TMAA.  Sandy is busy at her church where she accompanies the adult choir, plays handbells, runs the cameras for online worship, and assists her husband, Don Shelley, who is the Director of Music.  They have two grown children and four grandchildren (who are the smartest, most talented, beautiful grandchildren in the world!).
