I graduated in May of 2002 with a Bachelor’s degree in Music Education (Instrumental Emphasis/Woodwind Specialist for Flute, Oboe, Saxophone, bassoon, and Clarinet) with a double major in Music (Flute) Performance from the Metropolitan State College of Denver. I have studied with flute teachers Pat Peterson, Martha Fabrique, Nancy Teskey, Chris Potter, Fran Piazza, and Sylvia Greenfield, oboe teacher Sue Logan, piano teachers Calvin Jones, Karen Engelby, and Jean Carter, and voice teachers Kim Peters and Karen Engelby. I have taught private lessons on all woodwinds, plus one brass instrument (trumpet.) I also teach beginning piano and voice. I have taught since 1999. I also play flute and piccolo in the Colorado Wind Ensemble (since 2000,) and oboe in the Thornton Community Band since 2012. I have extensive experience teaching in schools as well.
