I am a professional oboist, teacher, and reed-maker in the Manhattan area. In recent months, I've played with the Manhattan Opera Studio, New York City Master Chorale, and New York Repertory Orchestra, to name a few. As a performer, I have played in many large venues across America and South East Asia. Recently, I was invited to give a recital at the International Double Reed Convention in Tampa Florida. For the Summer of 2017, I was an instructional oboe intern at the Vietnam National Academy of Music, where I performed and gave private lessons and masterclasses to the school's pre-college division oboists. Since 2014, my private studio has achieved Superior scores in regional and state solo & ensemble competitions and placement in various honor ensembles. I am a graduate of Brigham Young University with a Bachelors in Music and am currently pursuing a Master of Music at Manhattan School of Music.

As a teacher, I work to bring out the best in my students in a fun and encouraging way. My goal is keep music enjoyable for students while also helping them reach their goals and see their progress. I follow a thorough, but flexible, curriculum to help my students obtain a mastery of the oboe. In lessons, we will cover technique, repertoire, injury prevention, breath support, tone, and music history along with many other topics. Additionally, I love teaching reed making to all levels of students who are interested.

I feel completely at home teaching all levels, from absolute beginner to pre-college level players.

I love music and look forward to meeting you!
