Teaching since:

I specialize in orchestral clarinet and music theory, and can tailor my lessons to each individual student's needs. I believe technique is the foundation upon which all of music takes place. An apt comparison is language; if you cannot speak, say, French, how could I expect you to write poetry in French? The same holds true for music and clarinet - without a solid foundation in technique, it is not possible to express everything you want to say about a piece, beginner or advanced. All of my students begin with exercises in embouchure and finger techniques, which continue throughout our studies.

I recently received my Masters degree in clarinet performance from the Hartt School of Music, under Ayako Oshima. My previous instructors include Sarah Porwoll-Lee and Greg Balfany, during my undergraduate studies at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse. I have played clarinet since age ten, and have experience in a number of different ensembles, including the school orchestras at UW-La Crosse and Hartt, the La Crosse Symphony Orchestra (substitute), and the Nutmeg Symphony Orchestra.
