Horn teacher currently located in Santa Barbara, CA.
About Me | Teaching Experience
I have been teaching private french horn lessons as a freelance teacher since 2008. I am currently on faculty as a Horn Instructor at Westmont College and on staff at the Music Academy of the West.
As a teacher, I find the most joy in seeing technical improvement translate into artistic freedom and musicality. I tailor lessons and take time to understand each student's pace of learning and playing style.
In the past, I have also worked as a tutor at local junior high/high schools. I have unique experience in tutoring college bound students and assisting with college preparation, admissions, and auditions. I also have experience with special needs students.
