I have been a musician since the 6th grade, and have 6+ years of teaching Music Education in the public school system of Southern California. Before moving to California, I was the Woodwind Technician for 2 High School marching Bands from my home town of Erie, PA.
I am now available to take on private lesson students on Clarinet, Bass Clarinet, Alto and Tenor Saxophone, and Euphonium!
Before moving to California, I received my BS in Music Education from Penn State University as well as my Clarinet Performance Certificate. My Master of Music is also in Music Education from the State University of New York at Fredonia. I have also played professionally with the Bakersfield Winds (Bass Clarinet) and the Gold Coast Wind Ensemble (Clarinet).
I look forward to spending time making music with you!
