Teaching since:
May 2005

I currently teach private lessons in saxophone, flute, and piano and have experience working with individuals as well as small groups. In 2007, I received a Bachelor’s degree in Music Performance from the University of Washington where I studied jazz and classical saxophone. For the past 15 years, I have been performing with many professional groups, ranging in styles from big band jazz, classical, samba, funk, to gospel and blues.

It was an honor and a pleasure working with Gwen. Due to personal circumstances, I had to stop working with her, but I highly recommend her as an instructor. She's very knowledgeable, accommodating, and made me feel comfortable. You'll find yourself in good hands with her.
