About Emily L.

Hello! My name is Emily (she/her/hers). I am a classically trained musician offering online bassoon lessons for beginner to advanced students as well as saxophone lessons for beginning to intermediate students. I have seven years of teaching experience in both group and individual settings.

I am currently a student at USC's Thornton School of Music studying with Shawn Mouser, associate principal bassoon of the Los Angeles Philharmonic. I hold a bachelors from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music and a masters from UCLA. During my schooling I have studied with top musicians in the orchestral and film music industries.

In addition to performing, I have studied woodwind pedagogy for several years. I am currently working towards publishing an academic journal on the topic!

When we are not in a global pandemic I freelance in the Southern California area playing with chamber music societies, universities, professional orchestras, and much more! I've performed all over the United States as well as in Europe and China.

My diverse experiences as a musician and teacher, coupled with my interdisciplinary approach to music performance make me a great guide for young musicians on their own unique musical journey.

I look forward to hearing from you!
