I've played flute since the day I fell in love with it. When I was a little girl I saw the flute for the first time and wanted to play it ever since. I had a rough start in learning how to play the flute but over the past 13 years I've developed enough skill to be an advanced musician.

When I first started I had private tutors to teach me how to play. Then I played in elementary, middle, and high school concert band. I earned my Bachelor's degree in Music Education and Performance at Sacramento State, where I've performed with the Symphonic Wind Ensemble, Marching Band, Concert Band, and Symphony Orchestra. I have also performed with the Camellia Symphony Orchestra and a variety of other ensembles in the Sacramento area.

I'm currently a music teacher for Twin Rivers Unified School District. I have several years of experience in teaching middle school band and elementary general music. I believe in giving children the chance to enjoy and love music to the fullest while still learning the proper way to play beautifully. Every student is different so I patiently work at everyone's various paces. And if some students have more difficulty with the instrument than other students, then I'll go as slowly as they need in order for them to understand the first step before moving on to the next. My hope is that every person can experience music to the fullest.

*** Lesson Details ***
If you have never held an instrument before then I'll go over all the basics before even playing the instrument. The instrument should be handled carefully and with proper care to make sure it stays in good shape.

Once we have all these basics down, we'll play music! Starting with tonal exercises, scales, short pieces, and maybe even fun pop music that the student likes. It all depends on the students' preference and progress.


*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect my students to already have their instrument or get a rental. I'll provide a copy of the music that we'll be going over but they should purchase the book themselves when they get the chance.

*** Specialties ***
Classical, Pop music
