I have taught private music lessons for several years in Texas, and am looking forward to teaching in Boston! I have a music education degree from Baylor University and am currently attending Boston University for flute performance. I have also been playing piano since the age of 5. I graduated summa cum laude from Baylor and especially enjoyed music theory classes while there.
In addition to music, I have a successful photography business. I specialize in portrait photography and shoot in full manual mode on a Canon, usually in natural lighting (no flash). I can instruct on photo composition, shooting in manual mode (including focus, aperture, ISO, and shutter speed), and post-processing.
