I am a second year masters student at the Juilliard School. I worked as a camp counselor at Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp, performing in four ensembles and teaching daily middle school tuba sectionals. I also serve as a mentor in the Music Advancement Program at Juilliard.

Outside of Juilliard Orchestra and chamber ensembles, I enjoy playing solo music. These past two years, I have won the Blue Lake Fine Arts Staff Solo Competition, was one of the University of Connecticut Concerto/Aria Competition winners, and placed second in the Eastern Connecticut Symphony Orchestra Instrumental Competition. I have also won the Young Artist Solo Competition in 2012 and performed solo with the Coast Guard Band.

The performing arts have been a vital part of my life for as long as I can remember. My first instrument at age 5 was classical piano and I took Suzuki lessons for 13 years. I also sang in a large concert choir as a child and performed in community plays.

Samantha is a very enthusiastic, gifted teacher. She listens to my words as well as my music, and together we find a path that’s comfortable and encourages learning. Whether describing something, showing it to me on her tuba, or working with me while I get it right, it’s all about the fun of the musicianship.
