I am a Music graduate from Hunter College and a native of New York City, where I was once the music director for the Holy Rosary Theater Group. I have performed in various college ensemble and city groups across New York, New Jersey, and Colorado. I also had wonderful opportunities to perform in pit orchestras for Jekyll and Hyde: The Musical and Dirty Rotten Scoundrels while living in New York City. I currently perform as the principal horn for the city of Thornton's community band and am continuing my journey in education with MSU-Denver!
As an undergraduate at Hunter College I studied horn with Richard Casparie, music composition with Shafer Mahoney, and piano with Gary Hammond.
After moving to Colorado, I have been busy teaching as a substitute teacher for Mapleton Public Schools and Adams 12 Five Star Schools. In March 2013, I was offered the chance to work with Mapleton's intermediate and advanced bands, specifically working with wind instruments. In October 2013, I was offered to assist the entire Band Department at Mapleton Public Schools by offering help to many of the young musicians there as the interim director for the high school ensemble. In April, 2014 I began working alongside the Broomfield Youth Symphony to start a summer band program which had 35 members in its first session. I am now recruiting to continue this program and am doing an outreach program in Denver Public Schools to provide band to one of their schools!
My lessons offer every student a unique opportunity to have fun while also challenging them based on how much time they can commit to practice each week. I respond to the needs and the likes of each student and try to play towards those things.
I enjoy helping other people, especially through music and truly find joy in it. I love spreading that joy to others and hope to inspire my students to strive excellence in both music and beyond.
Thank you so much for stopping by my page. I look forward to meeting with you and creating music together!.

I recommend that students who are new to an instrument rent before buying. In the first few months, students discover if their chosen instrument is something they would like to stick with! Feel free to contact TakeLessons and look for me with any questions regarding rentals or buying instruments!
