My students do very well in their music programs. They're playing woodwind instruments (Clarinet, Saxophone, Oboe, Flute, Bass Clarinet) in the top ensembles at a number of District 16 high schools. Many of them are selected for honors bands each year and/or receive scholarships to attend the summer program at Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp. My students really enjoy performing - in studio recitals, church services, community events & metro Detroit youth ensembles :)

*I've been a private lesson teacher in this area since 1989, working primarily with students in District 16 of the Michigan School Band & Orchestra Association. I am also active as a musician, playing various instruments in band, orchestra and chamber music concerts.
