I am a passionate educator, no matter what subject I happen to find myself teaching. There is nothing quite so rewarding as the dawning comprehension of a new skill on a child's face, or their look of triumph after a great accomplishment.
My goal in life is simply to follow that passion - to teach. I particularly enjoy teaching music, with flute being my area of expertise. I hope that my students find music as infectiously wonderful as I do, and perhaps even one day share their passions with their own students.
I have been teaching and learning to teach flute for 11 years. I actually began by volunteering my time as an 8th grader to help incoming 6th graders learn the basics of flute. Eventually I took charge of those 6th graders, and now, 11 years later I have been teaching with MFSOM and in my own private studio for 5 years!
MFSOM is a non-profit organization in the Green Bay, WI area that believes in offering everyone the opportunity to make music at a high level of quality. I wholeheartedly support that mission by emphasizing healthy practice techniques for my students. That means giving them all of the tools to learn and grow on their own as musicians, with me there to simply help hone their abilities and assist where they need it.
