Additionally, she attended the Montecito International Summer Music Festival in 2018 where she studied with Yizak Schotten.

While pursuing an education in viola performance, Wesley also studied many areas of music theory including semiotics, narrative archetype approaches, undergraduate theory pedagogy, Schenkerian analysis, serialism, small and large formal analysis, Neo-Remannian theory, and atonal techniques.

Wesley is an amazing and encouraging teacher! She is super helpful whenever I have a problem and goes the extra mile to help me understand and correct my playing. Plus, she customizes my lessons to fit the music I am interested in playing. 10/10 would recommend!!
