Teaching since:

I'm a professional clarinetist with a passion for helping beginning and intermediate clarinetists achieve their music goals. I have a bachelor's in Clarinet Performance from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music plus two years private teaching experience. I work full time in an office in D.C. and teach clarinet part time, because I love it!

I specialize in fostering an autonomous, flexible learning environment, which means I recommend and advise based on each student's unique needs and objectives, rather than control and demand based on a pre-determined course. Especially for younger students, I encourage ownership of goals.

Lessons with me will always be enjoyable, because I believe people learn best when they're free from stress. I'm happy to match the pace at which you want to learn. Whether you're looking for guidance on technique, equipment, clarinet literature, competitions, general musicianship, or all of the above, I'm excited to share my expertise and love for the clarinet with you!

I welcome questions and would be happy to chat with any interested students or parents.
