Basic Teaching Philosophy or Special Music Interests/Specialties

My mission is to provide a comprehensive bassoon education to any dedicated to bassoonists. Whether you are interested in preparing for a professional life in music or simply looking to improve your skills, my studio has a place for you. I believe in providing a supportive environment in which we face challenges, celebrate success, and build friendships together.

Interests outside of music: 
I'm an avid yogi and practice every morning. I find it a wonderful compliment to balance out my professional performing and teaching life.

A few of my favorite things:
I love to bake, read a good book, and go on walks outside in all kinds of weather!

Why study music? : 
You'll never be bored, and the more you progress the better it gets!
