Teaching since:

I have played the clarinet for over 20 years and have taught music lessons for over 10 years, both as a graduate teaching assistant (BGSU & CU Boulder) and in the community. I love teaching students of all ages, from very beginners (students & adults) and advanced performers.

I currently teach in the community and coach woodwinds at the local school district (grades 5 - 12).
