Overview:
I hope to inspire a love of music in others through my teaching, playing, and composing.  In 2012 I graduated from Eastman School of Music with High Honors, and in 2015 I received a Master's degree in Jazz Studies from New York University.  I have performed in Italy, Canada, Costa Rica, and throughout the United States, and have taught various styles and instruments to students of all ages. I personalize my curriculum to each student, based on their goals and strengths, whether they are a student aiming for first chair in the school band, or an adult looking for a rewarding hobby.
EXPERIENCE
I began teaching saxophone when I was 15, to beginning players at local middle schools and quickly built a full studio of young saxophonists, clarinetists, and flutists. Since then, I have taught at Birch Creek Music Performance Center in Egg Harbor, Wisconsin, led masterclasses in San Jose, Costa Rica, Orange County, CA, Rochester, NY, and the Dallas/Fort Worth area. In 2015 I served as Adjunct Instructor of Applied Saxophone at New York University, developing and implementing a curriculum for undergraduate saxophonists that spanned from early jazz to modern pop. I enjoy engaging with students of all experience levels and help them develop facility on their instrument and an understanding of how music works.
METHODS USED
For students insterested in jazz, I assign weekly listening examples that lead to discussions during lessons.  This is in addition to typical exercises and etudes.  My main goal is to help students develop the tools they need to feel comfortable investigating their musical interests.
LESSON STYLE
I set realistic goals for my students, but emphasize the importance of the process more so than the end result. I maintain a positive disposition in lessons with an understanding of the student's non-musical responsibilities, and stress the importance of regular commitment and incremental improvement, no matter how small. I do not believe that hard work

Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.
