Personal Statement
I am experienced with teaching students of all levels and abilities, including adult beginners. Together we will work to come up with a lesson plan that is custom tailored to meet your specific need and achieve your goals.

I am available for audition coaching for festivals, PMEA, college auditions, etc.

My background as a musicologist studying historical performance practice will help you to bring nuance and style to standard repertoire. As well, my own experience as a solo and chamber music performer will inform your lessons and offer valuable insight that I have gained in my years of practice.
