Teaching since:
1982

I am an enthusiastic and experienced educator of music and academics. I am currently an area public school instrumental music teacher. I have 15 years of experience teaching privately. I currently play flute in a local professional band organization, and when I complete my Masters program, I will be adding an orchestral experience back into my agenda.

During my college years, I won "Who's Who in American Colleges and Universities" for my performance on violin and flute, and my academics. I attended a Juilliard summer music program in NY State, and studied my senior year with A. Casey from Case Western, Cleveland, OH

While a younger student, I spent each summer at the International Music Camp on the border between the US and Canada, studying with teachers from around the globe and playing with international students as well. Through this experience, I learned to value professionalism and enjoyment of music.

My mode of study and performance is very classical, and well-founded in solid repertoire of the genre.

I am planning a Spring/Summer recital for all of my students, and I would love you to join us!

Our 10 year old daughter loves taking weekly violin and piano lessons from Natalie. Natalie is very patient and encouraging with all of the lessons. We have seen much progress with our daughters violin and piano performance, and she is having a lot of fun learning!
