Overview

I am currently a lecturer with the Tulane University Department of Music. I recently completed my Master's degree in Oboe Performance from the University of Akron where was a graduate assistant for oboe and music theory. There I taught private oboe students and provided music theory tutoring at all levels and also studied piano.

I am also magna cum laude graduate of Tulane University's School of Liberal Arts where I majored in Music Performance and minored in Economics and Business. I studied with oboist Jaren Atherholt of the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra and pianist Faina Lushtak at Tulane.

I am currently based in New Orleans and I perform with professional orchestras throughout the area and state of Louisiana. I am able to offer lessons at my home in Mid-City and am able to travel throughout the metropolitan area. I am frequently in the Baton Rouge and Lafeyette areas as well.

To be a successful oboist, you must have great oboe reeds and I provide handmade professional quality reeds at prices comparable to music stores. This can be discussed at your lesson!
