I enjoy working with students of all ages, skill sets, and instrument specialties. I offer basic music education, music theory, jazz theory, preparation for state and solo competitions, and advanced work in saxophone.

Beginner lessons are for woodwind instrument students of any age. Lesson topics will include basic music theory, instrumental technical skills, and practice techniques.

Intermediate lessons are for woodwind players at high school level or above. Lesson topics will include applied and intermediate music theory, preparation for state competitions, introduction to instrumental repertoire for solo and ensemble, and an introduction to advanced woodwind technique.

Advanced lessons are for saxophone students only. Lesson topics will include introduction to college level music theory, preparation for collegiate music auditions, college level saxophone repetoire, and advanced extended techniques.
