Teaching since:

My life as a professional musician is full of joy, fulfillment, and excitement and I'd like to help you create that experience for yourself! I am currently playing with the Lakeview Symphony Orchestra, actively collaborating with local jazz musicians and producers, and in the process of creating an electronic music album and label. I graduated from Illinois State University with a Bachelor's in Cello Performance and Music Education and since then, I have been teaching for 8 years. I am comfortable teaching all age ranges and experience levels. Lessons will center around technique and musicianship but will always be balanced with creativity, exploration, and FUN!
