Hi there! I'm currently getting my Masters in clarinet performance at Cal State University, Long Beach. I've been playing since I was 12 years old and I absolutely love it! As a music teacher, I believe that all students should be offered the opportunity to discover and explore their potential as musicians, and to increase knowledge and skill through formal music instruction. In my opinion, the goal of music education is to encourage children to shape their own unique musical identity, through formal study and performance opportunities. My goal as a music educator is to mold students into musicians who are capable of performing, evaluating, and creating music. I look forward to playing music with you!
