Teaching since:

Massachusetts Music Educator since 1984. Berklee College of Music; BM Ed credentials. I have performed throughout New England in many different genres; from Jazz, Big band, Brass Quintet, Wind Ensemble, Motown and Rock, and have taught in Massachusetts for 30 years. I have won awards for working with physically and emotionally challenged children in public schools in the greater Boston area; Boston, Malden, Duxbury, Dedham, and presently in Westborough, MA. My philosophy is to find the light in each individual child to spark their excitement and passion for music. I am fully CORI checked (for public school safety and security) and finger printed through my current public school and can provide that info for you or your parents request.
