With 12 years of Bassoon playing experience and 6 years of teaching experience, I'm excited to expand my studio online and in person to reach an even wider range of students. I am prepared to teach at all levels from beginner to collegiate and for a wide range of lesson lengths (For any lengths not posted on TakeLessons, I am available for individual inquiries). I'm hoping to form a stable group of students which grow and learn over years of continued dedication to bassoon and music in general.
I am an experienced teacher and performer with two musical degrees, a Master's degree in Bassoon Performance from Arizona State University and a Bachelor's degree in Music Education from University of New Hampshire. My travels around the US and abroad have taught me many interesting things about bassoon playing in different climates and at extreme altitudes which have informed my playing tremendously! As an added bonus, I am an experience reed-maker and can assist in person and remotely with making reeds from scratch, improving reeds at any stage of life, and touching up reeds for performances or recitals.
