- Teaches students:
- Ages 10+
- Teaching since:
I am from Dallas, Texas but moved to Pittsburgh to study with Michael Rusinek of the Pittsburgh Symphony. I received my Bachelor of Music in Music Education from Southern Methodist University and my Master of Music and Advanced Music Studies Certificate from Carnegie Mellon University.
I taught middle and high school students in the Dallas area while I was working on my Bachelors degree and even completed an entire semester of student teaching to receive my Teacher Certification to teach public school in Texas.
What I enjoy about teaching is helping students reach their goals and being able to see their improvement from week to week. Everyone learns differently so it is a lot of fun to try different things and find the specific way that each student will thrive.
Taught private clarinet lessons for Highland Park High School in Highland Park, TX.
Taught private clarinet lessons for Berkner High School and it's feeder middle schools (Liberty and Apollo Junior High Schools) in Richardson, TX.
Taught private clarinet lessons for Cockrill Middle School in McKinney, TX.
After completing the required coursework in general education and music education, a semester of student teaching at a public school in Texas, and passing all of the required state exams I was granted Teacher Certification in Texas.
