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.
