Lesson Details


Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
I've been performing for 10 years and teaching for 6 years. I have experience in many genres, but I mostly have stuck to classical music. I can help with everything from beginning lessons to preparing for an audition and exploring careers in music. My lessons are individually crafted based on the interests and skill level of the student, but always with a focus on solid fundamentals of music and saxophone. Learning an instrument and discovering music are the most rewarding experiences you can have, and getting to know my students is important so that I can adjust my teaching style and they remain curious and motivated. Send me a message and lets talk saxophone!

Teaching since:

I'm a professional musician, educator, and arts administrator. I have Bachelor's degree in Music Performance and a Masters degree in Arts Administration, both from Florida State University.

As a musician, I play as a soloist and with chamber ensembles in the Bay Area. I've performed in concert halls and music festivals throughout the United States and Europe, and my recordings have been featured on NPR's Performance Today. As an educator and clinician, I've held residencies and given masterclasses Universities and music schools around the country including Northern Arizona University, SUNY Fredonia, Florida State University, Sacramento State University, Colorado State University, and others. I'm also a co-founder of the Mana Quartet Saxophone Institute ; a national saxophone workshop for musicians all over the country!

My personally drawn to classical/contemporary music but I think that solid fundamentals and having a command of the instrument is essential no matter what style you're playing. I look forward to working with you!
