At the core of my teaching philosophy is a fascination with the uniqueness of other people. This approach to teaching has evolved from a passion for listening to others, and from working with students of all different ages and backgrounds, including children ages 6-18, adults, and senior citizens. It also gives me the ability to modify my teaching approach according to the needs of my students. I have enjoyed teaching private music lessons since 2016, and regularly make house calls for my students.
Outside of teaching and performing, I enjoy running, reading, and spending time with friends. My favorite books include J.D Salinger's "The Catcher in the Rye", Tim O'Brien's "The Things They Carried", and Sherwood Anderson's "Winesburg, Ohio". I listen to all kinds of music, but at the forefront is classical music, as well as Radiohead and Led Zeppelin.
I received my Bachelor of Music degree from the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music.
