I am an award winning, pi kappa lambda honoree, summa cum laude graduate of Syracuse University's school of Visual and Performing Arts-Setnor School of Music, where I received a four-year music director's talent scholarship.
I am classically trained and perform all styles of music, from classical to jazz to pop. I play saxophone, flute, clarinet, and piano. I perform professionally with a large Philadelphia based entertainment company, as well as will local bands in the Philadelphia area.
I teach piano, saxophone, flute, and clarinet to all ages and skill levels. I enjoy working with students who just want to play for fun, as well as those who are looking to compete in local competitions. I have been involved in County, District, Regional, and All-States bands, concerto/jazz competitions, music composition contests.
I love teaching music, and I look forward to lessons with you!
*I also have a special piano lesson program developed just for preschoolers ages 3 and up. Learning music at a young age helps develop the part of the brain involved with thinking, memory, language, math, and creativity.

After a 26-year hiatus in the radio business, I'm back in the field I trained for in college. I graduated from Lebanon Valley College in Annville, PA in 1980 with a Bachelor of Science degree in music education, and taught for 6 years before trying radio on for size, so to speak. I also taught for 2 years in the early 1990's while between radio jobs. These days, I'm "getting back to my roots" in music!!

I started playing saxophone at age 7. I heard the Beatles, and I flipped; soon I learned every song from a Lennon/McCartney songbook. When I was 14, I discovered the joy of jazz improvisation, and once I heard John Coltrane, I knew that I wanted to dedicate my life to music! I attended Oberlin College, where I studied Jazz and Classical saxophone. In between semesters, I was fortunate to study in New York with Bobby Watson, and in Philadelphia with the legendary Odean Pope, with whom I took a class as well as studied privately. After graduating college, I started to teach and play music professionally. Currently, I play with the West Philadelphia Orchestra, the city's hardest working Balkan Brass band. I also have many original music projects of my own which explore the possibilities of amplified saxophone.
