I love playing and teaching the oboe and helping people find their own voice through the instrument!
I have a bachelor's degree of music in oboe performance from the Conservatory of Music at Purchase College, SUNY. Since then, I have become a teacher at the Real Brave Audio Music School in addition to having taught privately for 3 years so far.
I started playing music at the age of 5 after being so fascinated by watching orchestras on TV! I continued music through middle school and attended Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School for Music and Art and Performing Arts where I began playing the oboe after I switched from flute. I realized the oboe is the instrument through which I could express myself the most.
I have played with professional ensembles such as the Carnegie Hall affiliate ensemble Decoda, Greenwich Village Orchestra, Metro Chamber Orchestra, and Gateways Festival Orchestra.
The International Double Reed Society (IDRS) was established in December of 1971 and is a world-wide organization of double reed (oboe and bassoon family) players, instrument manufacturers and enthusiasts. The society has over 4,400 members from 56 countries. Within the United States, 50 states as well as the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico are represented.
