I earned a degree in music education from the University of New Hampshire. I began teaching private lessons while in college and now have over 25 years experience teaching bassoon. I enjoy working with students to find their inner bassoonist! It has been a joy to watch students play in the VYOA and move to college and then continue as adults.
Lessons are designed for the individual and their needs. More advanced students have the option of learning to make reeds.

I studied with the teaching assistant of Ivan Galamian, Miss Sally Thomas, for six years so my teaching method is solidly grounded in Galamian pedagogy. A method that encourages students with principles and guidelines, rather than rules and regulations. I also have experience with the RCM curriculum and teaching in the Suzuki Method.
