Hello, I'm Emily, and I'd love to help you on your musical journey! I have years of experience teaching woodwind and piano lessons to students of all ages and backgrounds, from children beginning band programs and adults picking up a new hobby to serious students working to embark on a career as music performers and educators themselves. I also enjoy working with children and adults with special needs, including students on the autism spectrum. I currently perform in the clarinet sections of the Carmel Symphony, Evansville Philharmonic, Champaign-Urbana Symphony Orchestra, and the Johnstown Symphony Orchestra. I have also performed with the Akron Symphony Orchestra, the Grammy Award-winning Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, and several others. I serve as the Artistic Director of Kamratōn, a chamber ensemble dedicated to women-created and women-curated new music. I’ve played with jazz-fusion ensemble the Afro-Yaqui Music Collective at venues in Pittsburgh and New York City, and I enjoy performing as an improvisor. I’ve also worked as a church pianist and enjoy teaching all genres of piano performance. In Fall 2022, I will serve as Visiting Instructor of Clarinet at Millikin University. Previously, I led the bands and ukulele ensemble at St. Vincent in Bedford, IN. I'm happy to answer any questions you might have, and I look forward to meeting you!

She is extremely patient. My 5 year old son enjoys piano lessons with her.
Emily taught me the most valuable fundamental skill which is how to practice effectively.
