After playing the flute and piano on my own for seven years, I began my classical music education at the age of sixteen with international soloist Jun Kubo. Only a year and a half after I began my studies with Jun Kubo, I was accepted into The College of New Jersey for a Bachelor's program in Music Performance where I studied with David DiGiacobbe. While at TCNJ, I performed my own programs in Mayo Concert Hall, featuring soloistic works by composers such as Nielsen, Hoover, and Takemitsu. I also had the pleasure of performing with the TCNJ Opera, Chamber, and Symphony Orchestras. I went on to perform with the NYU Symphony Orchestra and participate in the NYU Chamber Music program where I have played with a Trio, Quintet, Sextet, and flute ensemble. I have participated in masterclasses with performers such as Trevor Wye, Min Park, Gary Shocker and Bradley Garner. I currently run my own teaching studio Wisconsin where I teach music theory, woodwinds, voice, and piano. I have obtained my Bachelors from The College of New Jersey in music performance, and my Master of Music degree from NYU, where I studied with Bradley Garner. I also taught at a music conservatory in Springfield, NJ, where I taught Woodwinds, Piano, Voice and Music Theory for about 5 years and helped prepare students for auditions, competitions, and evaluations.
I use a very supportive and positive teaching style. I believe that music lessons should be a way to help build self esteem as well as show students that they are capable of great things! I always incorporate music theory in my lessons as well! I think it is vital that students understand at least some music theory in order to understand what they are learning and why. I do think fundamentals are vital for every instrument, but I also think it is important for students to learn pieces and genres that interest them as well.
I am always excited to meet new students and share the joy of music!
