About Me

I have been a teacher and conductor since high school, and am very excited to take on more students through takelessons!. I have studied piano since I was five, and trombone since I was ten. My training in both instruments began in classical music, and I have been a jazz player for many years as well. My music training was always deeply personal--I was lucky to have wonderfully accommodating teachers who adapted their teaching to my learning style, and emphasized musicality above all else. I aim to provide the same combination of skill-building and personal development through my lessons.

To each lesson I bring a unique mix, encouraging the student to pursue excellence and also have fun. I am well qualified to teach: woodwinds( oboe, flute, clarinet, all saxophones) brass(french horn, trumpet ,trombone, tuba), and piano.

I make music interesting to learn. I encourage students to practice daily so they can improve. The more they improve the more fun they can have with music not only alone, but with others.

I am very patient with my students especially with beginners. I know that for them it is like learning a new language. Once they begin to increase their musical vocabulary, they will enjoy what they can do with music.
