 Hello!  I have a passion for teaching and performing on all woodwinds and can help you enjoy learning your chosen woodwind instrument. I am a Cleveland, OH native and passionate educator with over 20 years of professional experience performing in pit orchestras for musical theater, orchestras, and church performances where I also arranged the music for worship. I am currently the woodwind applied lesson professor for Cuyahoga Community College.

I teach all ages of students, from the complete beginner to the advanced musician. I enjoy not only helping students learn a single instrument but learning how to double onto other woodwinds. One of my greatest joys is being able to share what I have learned and assist others in their personal growth toward their goals. My students have been accepted into various music programs including the Cleveland Orchestra Youth Orchestra, Cleveland Youth Wind Symphony, and various college music programs.


My passion is music, and I want my students to love their instrument too. I am aware that each student has their own personal goals. I enjoy learning about those goals and assisting each student to achieve those dreams with their chosen instrument. I don't have just one mode of teaching and easily adapt to what a student needs for learning styles. Together we will learn to make while having fun. 

I work with each student on his or her own level to choose appropriate material and adjust as needed with other supplemental resources. Come with what you have and we will progress from there.

What will be your next instrument clarinets, flutes, saxophones, or oboe/English horn?
