Like a lot of people I know, I began playing bass in 6th grade orchestra. In middle school, I began to think that music was more than just a passing interest. The orchestra took the morning off from regular classes to have extra rehearsal time before a feeder school tour that afternoon. I thought it was the best day ever since I got to just play bass all day! In high school, I took every opportunity to study music I could. I joined the jazz band, took AP music theory, played the musicals, got into All-State, and joined the youth symphony. I went on to earn a BM in music education and now play and teach bass professionally.
I can be seen playing with such groups as the Anchorage Symphony, Anchorage Opera, and am a founding member of the Anchorage Bowl Chamber Orchestra. I've taught bass workshops for various ensembles in the Anchorage School District and at Birchwood String Camp. My students have been admitted to the Alaska All-State Orchestra, All- Northwest, and have received top marks at solo and ensemble festivals.
I'm so excited to work with you! Please reach out with any questions or to see if we'd be a good fit!
