Experienced and highly qualified instrumental instructor.
University credentials from programs that remain amongst the best in music performance and education in the nation. These credentials are matched by 10 years of performance and teaching experience - New York and Seattle.
As an experienced soloist, orchestral and lead player, I have had the time to develop a deep physical connection to my instruments. This connection, gained after years of practice and performance, informs my approach to instruction. My goal is to impart technique and knowledge that assists the student to break through physical barriers and achieve maximum musical expression, no matter what the style.

I believe music is for everyone, and every student I have will see my enthusiasm for making and learning music. Piano was the instrument that started my musical journey, and I would love to help you start yours! If you are a non-musician seeking to enter the musical world, I have trained with fantastic teachers, and am eager to share that knowledge with you.
I am currently completing my Master of Music degree in Brass Performance (Trumpet) at the University of Washington with a teaching certificate with endorsements for General, Instrumental and Choral music. My primary teachers are David Gordon (principal trumpet of the Seattle Symphony), Allen Vizzutti (internationally acclaimed trumpet star), and Dr. Kathryn Aducci (Baroque trumpet specialist). I actively perform and practice so I can be a role model for my students (whether they play piano, trumpet, or want to study music theory/performance). I have taken auditions, extensively studied piano and music theory, and performed in almost every ensemble that has trumpet. I have performed in Baroque trumpet ensembles, brass ensembles, brass quintets, jazz bands, and drum and bugle corps (Santa Clara Vanguard), wind ensembles, symphony orchestras, and as a soloist with choirs.
*** Lesson Details ***
I have a laid back approach to the material we use in lessons, and I like to keep a timeline in mind as to what is to be accomplished by when. All music books contain some value, and if you have 1 or some, we will use existing materials as long as we can to limit the cost of materials. If you have no books, and are a true beginner, we will find the book that most interests you, and go from there. As lessons continue we will check our timeline to ensure we have worked towards your goals. As goals are reached, or not reached, we can asses what needs to change, what is working, and how effective your practice time has been. Each student is unique, and each student's learning pace is unique. I want you to see improvement, and enjoy the music making process. All of my teaching is based on those goals. Twice a year I host a recital for my students under the age of 18, in order for them to gain experience performing for an audience. This has been a wonderful instructional tool for them, and the parents also love it!
