Overview

I have been playing saxophone, clarinet, flute and piano for seventeen years, and have been a career musician and educator for ten. My last job was as a high school band teacher in New York, and before that I taught elementary instrumental music in Japan. I graduated from the Eastman School of Music with degrees in music education and jazz performance. I have enjoyed an exciting career as a performer, but my first love is teaching. Beginning and advanced students are challenged, yet fun is always first in my studio!

Teaching Philosophy

Lessons will contain an exciting variety of music-making based on the philosophy that music is learned by ear first, much like how we naturally learn a language. These activities will include learning songs by ear, reading music, improvisation, composition, duets (with myself), and efficient and effective practice techniques. Our lessons will always be fun, and practice will be varied and interesting. With even a small amount of focused practice you will feel a concrete improvement on a weekly basis. Let's get started!
