September 2003

Hi! My name is Lindsey. I went to California State University, Northridge, where I earned a Bachelor degree in Music Performance and a Master of Arts in Geography. I have been teaching music lessons and tutoring for over 10 years. In addition, I have played in many orchestras, chamber groups, and as a soloist in venues all over the country including Carnegie Hall in New York and Disney Hall in Los Angeles. When I'm not playing or teaching, I am working as a freelance air pollution consultant and cartographer, knitting, cooking, gardening, or playing with my ridiculously cute dog, Snowy.

Very Happy with my daughters progress, Lindsey is doing a great job in keeping Molly interested in learning and encouraging her to be a better player.
Thank you for the improvement we have seen and heard in Molly's playing.
