I have played clarinet for over 20 years. I studied clarinet with members of the Philadelphia Orchestra while studying music education at Temple University. I play professionally and enjoy teaching all levels of clarinet students! I frequently perform on clarinet and bass clarinet.
I received my Doctorate in clarinet performance from the Frost School of Music at the University of Miami in May 2020. During my doctoral program, I was the teaching assistant in clarinet for three years. Previously, in May 2016, I graduated from California State University with a Master in Music in clarinet performance under the teaching of Hakan Rosengren, international soloist. Finally, prior to my doctorate studies, I studied with Boris Allakhverdyan, principal clarinetist of the Los Angeles Philharmonic. I currently teach at the LA Philharmonic Youth Orchestra YOLA and at the French Conservatory of Music in Los Angeles. I am also a Buffet Crampon USA sponsored artist. I have the experience of teaching private lessons in France and America and I am seeking clarinet students of every level and age. I will focus my teaching on your needs and can help you improve technique, musicianship and sound production. I also can help you get ready for auditions and recitals.

The clarinet is and amazing and versatile instrument used in a huge variety of genres including: classical, swing, jazz, musical theater and commercial music. It can also be one of the most challenging instruments to get started on. I'm here to make that those first few steps as easy and fun as possible. For the more developed student, I can help identify and strengthen weakness and develop skills to take their playing to the next level. With my students, I aim to develop a strong foundation of technique, sound production, tone quality and reading skills so that no matter the musical situation, they are playing their very best. I use a wide range of of exercises and techniques, method/etude books, duet playing, as well as listening and ear training to give my students a well rounded approach to the bass clarinet and music in general, helping them to become the best musician they can be. Wether you’re preparing for an audition, or just learning for fun, I can help you reach your goals and beyond!
