I am a professional flutist and flute instructor with over 17 years of experience. I currently hold the position of principal flutist of the Dana Point Symphony, have many years of recording experience, performed internationally, and have been privately teaching students of all ages and levels for over seven years.
My students can expect to gain a strong foundation in flute performance, including preparation for recitals and auditions. My students also develop an appreciation of great music and a solid background in theory. They have gone on to become great flute players, and have been accepted into excellent music schools, including the Bob Cole Conservatory of Music at Cal State Long Beach, Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University, and Biola University Conservatory of Music.
I believe in inspiring lifelong lessons that help students achieve self-discipline, creativity, professionalism and assist them in accomplishing their goals.

With new students, I like to take a little time to get to know each other and to hear your musical goals, aspirations, and musical likes. For students that are just starting out, we will jump right into making a sound with the flute and start working on some basic pieces as well as learning to read notes and building technique. For more advanced students, I will have them play a piece that they are working on and we will dive right into the most challenging areas as well as work on and develop cornerstone habits that will propel them forward!
