I am a professional hornist and pianist actively performing and accompanying in a wide variety of settings to include professional orchestras, weddings, churches, musicals, competitions, and even coffee shops.
I've been teaching private students as well as coaching youth orchestras since 2012, and my ultimate goal is to get more young people to start a conversation (with others as well as with themselves) about classical music! I want to see young students succeed and take pride in their successes while simultaneously allowing them to create an artistic experience that is both meaningful and unforgettable.
With a Master's in Horn, a Bachelor's in Piano, and years of aural skills training and tutoring, I have a variety of neat tricks and skills to help you achieve your musical goals!
