- Teaches students:
- Ages 7 to 25
- Teaching since:
I grew up in Utah taking private lessons and received my Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Flute Performance at Brigham Young University. Throughout my educational experience, I won several competitions, traveled the world, and fell in love with teaching!
In that time, I realized something that changed the course of my education. So often we depend on waiting for results to reward ourselves with feelings of worthiness and belonging, when really the basic human need that satisfies these cravings is to create. I believe the desire to create is innate and music is one of the best ways to implement that creativity in our lives.
To support that, studies show that being involved in music activities increases self-confidence, personal achievement and creative expression. It is one of the most enjoyable and rewarding ways to practice discipline and the value of hard work.
To help my students achieve the same result, I hope to provide proper learning technique and music theory comprehension. My own discovered creativity blended with the creative intuition of my students will result in more connected and confident playing.
Throughout my experience, both as a student and as a teacher, I've refined a methodology to provide for the individual needs of my students. I believe that by applying my knowledge and experience, you can better achieve your creative goals.
