Overview:

I’m thrilled that I have the opportunity to develop and share my passion for music every day. My musical journey began at a young age with studies in clarinet and piano. Later as I become involved in community theatre organizations, I also fell in love with the flute and saxophone.  I recently graduated from Montclair State University with a Bachelor of Music Degree in Clarinet Performance. While studying there, I had the opportunity to perform in a variety of venues, including Carnegie Hall, serving as the principle clarinet of a numerous ensembles. Currently I am pursuing a Master’s Degree in Music Education and continuing to perform as freelance musician.

EXPERIENCE

My teaching experience dates back to my time in high school. I served as woodwind section leader of our marching band, and gave private woodwind lessons to younger students while I was supposed to be taking my lunch period! My love for teaching extended beyond those days. I continued teaching in college and also began to coach chamber groups of a preparatory school. I feel comfortable teaching all ages and levels in the areas of woodwinds, piano, theory, and music reading. 

METHODS USED

I believe learning the fundamentals of instruments and music are essential to students’ success. Solo repertoire based on interest and skill level are also crucial. Materials for these two areas of learning are based on the curriculum that works best for the individual student. I encourage all students to participate in competitions, region and area honors bands, and many groups within their school in order to gain experience and confidence on their instrument.  

LESSON STYLE

During my first lesson, I remember how excited I felt to hold my very own instrument. I wish to recreate that same excitement for all of my students! My ultimate goal of teaching is to create confident musicians who feel as passionate about music as I do. It is my opinion that the best way to achieve this is to create a positive learning environment in which the students’ interests inspire what material is covered, while also incorporating standard repertoire and method books that develop the parameters of musicianship. By rewarding consistent practicing and effort, students will remain interested and progress at a faster rate.

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.
