As an educator, my teaching experience is wide-ranging, but my goal in every lesson and classroom setting is to foster proficiency in, as well as conscious appreciation for, technical mastery, self-expression, and professional development based on the needs of each individual student. In all programs that I have taught, I guide my students through accessible methods in which they form transferable skills, share musical innovations, and formulate artistic confidence on and off stage. I design these steps and pursue these goals in service to my belief that every student deserves the opportunity to feel empowered by music, regardless of ability level or background.
Based out of Phoenix, I’m available to teach private lessons, group lessons, coachings and masterclasses in your home or school. My students range from beginners through college, as well as adults, many of which have chosen to pursue music at universities and conservatories throughout the United States and abroad. Lessons and/or coachings can be weekly or bi-weekly, and can range from 30 to 60 minutes depending on your personal and professional goals. My rates depend on the length of lesson, as well as the distance I am traveling to you (if necessary).
Generally speaking, lesson curriculum will be focused on clarinet pedagogy, performance techniques, music theory, and audition success. I offer my students instruction with school ensemble music, regional/all state materials, or any type of performance preparation as the school year progresses. I teach hobbyists and a provide wide range of personal goals for my adult students. As an active performer myself, all of my students have the opportunity to perform in studio recitals to showcase their solo repertoire each semester.
