I have been active as a music educator since 2001, and have taught at the University of Vermont, Johnson State College, the Monteverdi Music School, and FlynnArts. In teaching, my first aim is to keep music lessons fun and engaging! I encourage students to let their own musical interests guide our work together. As a performer, I regularly play jazz, funk, rock, and pop, and I enjoy incorporating any and all of these styles into lessons. If you prefer a more traditional, reading-based approach using sheet music, I am happy to offer that format as well. I have studied improvisation, theory, and ear training extensively, and really enjoy teaching these skills.
I am currently accepting students of all levels in my home studio in Burlington, VT. Please feel free to contact me if you have questions or would like to schedule a lesson!
