About Me

Hello. I have been teaching music since the age of fifteen. I would teach note value, rhythm, counting, and different sound techniques on the clarinet. All through high school, I was section leader in band, orchestra, and other organizations outside of Dayton, Ohio. I developed a sense of compassion, patience, and drive.

I have my high school diploma from Stivers School for the Arts in Dayton, Ohio. I received my Bachelors degree from Bowling Green State University (BGSU) in Music Performance (Clarinet), in Bowling Green, Ohio. I also received my minor in telecommunications.

*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching style is based around the student. I believe each student learns in their own unique way. Finding a lee-way into the students learning style is key. I am able to get any student to open up to me and communicate musically and educationally. I find out where the student's learning level is first and build from there. My overall goal in teaching is to allow each student to find their own learning style and let them know that they are each unique individuals. I am a mixture of both laid back and strict. If the student is practicing on a regular basis and is willing to learn, then the lesson will go smoothly. After three or six months with me, the student will be able to find their playing style and see what methods work best for me. For example, if a student is struggling with rhythm, I will show them different ways to use their strengths to develop the weakness.

Parents are welcome to stay during lesson times as well!
