Hello! I just finished my second year as elementary general music, chorus and band teacher in Swampscott, Massachusetts. I recently relocated to Cary, North Carolina. I graduated from Gordon College with a B.M. in Music Education. My primary instruments are saxophone and bass guitar, but I also teach beginning band, piano and guitar lessons for students of all ages. I am passionate about jazz and classical saxophone as well as all styles of music for bass guitar, from hip hop and R&B to country and blues. Piano lessons available in home on electric keyboard, but otherwise I must travel to you for all other lessons.
Taught general music and chorus for grades K-4 and band for all grade four students in the Swampscott School District. Assisted grades 5-8 band rehearsals at the middle school. I specialize in teaching the following beginning band instruments: flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, trombone, and percussion.+ Read More
