About this pro

I have been teaching privately for 25 years. I started teaching back when I was in high school.

Each student is unique and as such so is each lesson plan I prepare. I take care to teach appropriate brass pedagogy to help with your technique. We work on fun stuff to including duets, soloi, may a little improv, etc.

Vocal students that are younger than 14 tend to get overlooked and I work with each on vowels and melodic warm ups to help sing naturally. No forced sing or belting in this studio. Vocal warm ups that are musical. You can do improv for voice as w student learns music theory. I prepare games to learn music theory.

I love helping kids and adults alike master something they found challenging at first. I love being able to help them succeed and find the joy in music!

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

We start with a free 15 minute Meet and Greet or a regular lesson. I have them fill out information sheet and go over my lesson policy, hear them play, talk about what they are looking for...for older students. Younger students it's mostly to see where they are at and what they can do so far.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

Master's of Music - University of Michigan - Horn Performance

Bachelor's of Music - University of the Pacific, Conservatory of Music, cum laude, - Horn Performance

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

Monthly payment is discounted. One time lessons are slightly more.

How did you get started teaching?

In high school my band director from middle school started sending students to me. I really enjoyed it. My first 2 students are still teaching, playing and composing music! 

What types of students have you worked with?

I work with complete beginners that are in 4th grade to adults who have not played in 30 years...and students prepping for college auditions, and everything in between.

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

If you want to really learn your instrument and you are willing to put in the time, I can helped you succeed to be proficient and thus have more enjoyment playing music!

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

What is your goal? Learning something new takes work, but it can be fun. Are you ready?
