Teaching since:
2007

I started my career as a musician at the age of 5 studying with Suzuki violin teachers. During high school, I moved my concentration to the electric and double basses. I began studying in college as a jazz performance major and also earned a Bachelor of Science in Music Education with state certifications in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. I have years of experience teaching diverse learners and students with special needs in several public, private, charter, and catholic school districts. I love teaching and attend certification courses each summer for Suzuki Bass Pedagogy with Virginia Dixon at the Milt Hinton Bass Institute at Oberlin Conservatory, and Elmhurst College.

As a performer, I have played with many orchestras, artists, weddings, chamber groups, theater companies, and bands in the Philadelphia area. I love performing all types of music and continue to study performance at Rowan University under the tutelage of Douglas Mapp and Timothy Schwarz.
