Teaching since:
July 2007

I have a BFA in Cello Performance from UW-Milwaukee. As a student, I worked for the university as a tutor in Music Theory, at the recommendation of my professors. Since relocating to Philadelphia, I have established myself as an educator all over the city. I am a teaching artist with the Settlement School of Music as well as the cello instructor at the Baldwin School. My teaching method puts a focus on realizing musicality and expression through proper playing technique. Playing for hours shouldn't be hard on your body! I work to make my students comfortable at their instruments so their musical intentions can shine.

As a performer, I work in diverse settings, from professional orchestral experience during my time in the Midwest to theater and dance accompaniment in Philadelphia. A fundamental part of my career has been performing with bands: I have recorded on 30 albums and toured extensively, with projects spanning a broad spectrum of genres.
