Teaches students:
Ages 9+

Teaching since:

" excellent clarinetist" - The New York Times
I have performed with the Metropolitan Opera, New York Philharmonic, Seattle Symphony, Philadelphia Orchestra, at Carnegie Hall, and toured internationally. I have taught beginners to professionals, ages 8-80, and at the University of Washington. Former students include professional performers, university professors, and happy students.

I love music and the clarinet, and I can help you have more fun with clarinet playing.

There is no such thing as talent. Anyone can do this if they want to.
