As a professional musician who has been gigging since 2010, I am proficient in a plethora of different styles of music. A self-taught jazz musician who has performed under the direction of world-renowned jazz composer, Maria Schneider. I have also had the privilege of performing with regional symphony orchestras such as the Lima Symphony (OH) and Adrian Symphony (MI).

As an educator, I have been teaching trumpet lessons privately since the summer of 2014. Additionally, I have been a graduate teaching assistant at two different Universities, Bowling Green State University, and the Ohio State University.

I focus my teaching on making sure students have a good foundation that we can build upon. Students will develop tools they can use in order to problem solve and develop their own methods of practicing.

By the time I was in middle school, I was writing music for the piano and violin. Ohio State expanded my horizons, as professors gave me assignments to write for other instruments in different and more modern styles. At the same time, I developed my interest in pop/rock music and devoted time to songwriting. Whether you want to write a string quartet or a rock anthem, I can help you. My goal is to have you discover your own compositional style rather than mimic mine.

It is my goal as a teacher to give you the tools to play music but more importantly to create music.

My Teaching Philosophy
The Uke is a wonderful instrument that any style of music can be played on. From pop hits of today to pop hits of the 1920's, classical, jazz and beyond.
We will start by learning all of our chords, strum patterns as well as basic melodies. Then progress into finger picking and "claw-hammer" style of uke playing.

Left Hand-
Scales and arpeggios our the bedrock of music. They are the foundation of everything harmonically and melodically. We will begin with learning our major, minor and pentatonic scales and corresponding arpeggios. Once we have an understanding of those we will delve into our modes and more “exotic” scales.

Right Hand-
The right hand is our time machine. It gives us the ability to play in time and with groove and feel. We will work on rhythmic studies string crossings and practicing with a metronome. Remembering music is ...

I enjoy the process she applies to keep it positive and fun yet learn the proper fundamentals required to perform well.

The Loog Guitar Revolution: Guitar Lessons for Kids Will Never be the Same

As a music educator and performer, I’m always interested in learning about new products and tools that can help students succeed.  When I discovered the Loog Guitar, a 3-string interchangeable guitar designed with children in mind, I immediately took notice. I was excited to find out more about the Loog because I took guitar lessons when I was 8 years old, and it proved to be easier said than done. The guitar was added to the list of instruments that were uncomfortable for my tiny hands (w …
