I have a great love for music education. It was of the utmost importance to me as a young performer and I couldn’t ask for anything more than to pass that along to future generations of musicians. I enjoy teaching as much as my students enjoy playing and I gain great satisfaction from helping them to learn and grow in their musicianship.
I employ a variety of teaching techniques to address a wide range of learning styles and am sensitive to the needs of individual students. I do not utilize one specific method; rather, I feel it is important to adapt my teaching style to best fit the needs and demands of each student.
In addition to teaching the flute, I am a widespread music educator in Marin. I am the associate conductor and manager of the Marin Symphony Youth Orchestra and have served on the board for the Marin Music Chest Awards. Additionally, I have taught music classes at the San Domenico School Conservatory and at Redwood High School. I received my Bachelor’s degree in Flute performance from San Francisco State University and studied conducting at Tanglewood with Michael Morgan, esteemed conductor of the Oakland Symphony.
