- Teaches students:
- and Ages 9+
- Teaching since:
I became a member of the Los Angeles Philharmonic at the age of 20 and played under the direction of more than 20 of the world's greatest conductors, as the current conductor was on leave! I have been giving private flute lessons since I was in High School, and College. I have a Bachelor of Music Education Degree from Drake University School of Fine Arts.
I have performed as soloist with orchestras, and done studio work (First Flute on "Dr. Zhivago"), and taught at Cal State LA, Pierce College, CSUN, and head of the Wind Department of the Southern Calif. Conservatory of Music for 30 years. I founded and still direct The Conejo Valley Flute Society (Flute Choir) in 2002- we are in our 15th year.
I enjoy teaching all levels, all ages. I offer 3 or 4 Recitals a year, and am a member of MTAC (Music Teachers Association of Calif), National Flute Association, and Professional Musicians Local 47. I am head of the Wind Department for my local Branch Of MTAC (Conejo Valley), And I have been an adjudicator for Certificate of Merit for 15 years.
I enjoy teaching and helping each student become the best they can be. Many of my students have held first chair positions, and some former students are playing professionally!
