“Teaching is what I love to do. Guiding students through the process of learning an instrument and helping them see their potential is immensely gratifying. I like to follow student interests in combination with reinforcements of good technique and musicality.
I have a BA in Music Education from Central Washington University as well as an MA in Music Education from the University of Washington. I have taught middle school band and orchestra at Broadview-Thompson K-8, and then at Whitman Middle School in Seattle. I have also taught Music Education classes and band at the University of Washington, and maintained a small saxophone studio while going to school.”
