Levels Taught:

I am a recent graduate from the Bienen School of Music, one of the top music conservatories in the country. In addition to that, I have spent one full year at the Cleveland Institute of Music and have studied with many of the top oboe performers in the world including but not limited to

Nathan Hughes (The Juilliard School/Principle of NY Met)
Michael Henoch (Northwestern University/Assistant Principal of The Chicago Symphony)
Scott Hostetler (Northwestern University/English Horn for The Chicago Symphony)
Trevor Mowry (President’s Own United States Marine Band, Principal Oboe)
Katherine Needleman (Principal of The Baltimore Symphony)
Dwight Parry (Principal of The Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra)
Robert Sorton (The Ohio State University)
Karen Pfeifer (Ohio Wesleyan University)

I also have won many awards during my career as an oboe player such as

2x National YoungArts Winner in Music-Instrumental (Oboe) Division
National Youth Orchestra Oboe Section Alternate
United States Marine Band Concerto Competition Finalist, Washington DC
New Albany Symphony Orchestra Concerto Competition - Finalist
Oboes on the Ohio Idol Competition, Winner
MTNA, Student Concerto National Competition Finalist Winner
National Symphony Orchestra Summer Music Institute, State Finalist

I would be able to impart on any level of student, a great amount of knowledge from just learning to basics, to a student gearing up for competition/pursuing a future career in music.
