"I hold a Master's Degree in Oboe Performance from the Bob Cole Conservatory of music at California State University, Long Beach. At the Cole Conservatory I had the privilege of studying oboe and English horn with Carolyn Hove. My Bachelor's Degree, also in Oboe Performance, is from the Hartt School of Music of the University of Hartford in West Hartford, Connecticut. While there I studied with oboist Humbert Lucarelli.

I have extensive experience teaching private and group lessons, including lessons in Piano, English Horn and reed making. My students have gone on to win scholarships and place in honor orchestras. Currently, my students hold the top spots in nTyme's (North Torrance Youth Musicians Ensemble) Chamber Orchestra.

Locally, I have performed with the Dana Point Symphony, Symphony Irvine, as well as other groups around Southern California. Previously, I was a long-time member of the Cheshire Symphony.

Whether you choose to take lessons online or in your home, I strive to make each lesson engaging, informative, and fun! Students are expected to practice between lessons and come to lessons prepared with their instrument and music. I also encourage students to bring any music that they're interested in learning to their lessons.

Oboe:

I start my oboe students off using the Rubank Oboe Method. It provides them with a solid foundation of scales and rhythmic patterns, while also incorporating folk songs and duets for lyrical study. As the student progresses, other method books will be recommended based on the student's interests and level. Solo repertoire is also assigned based on student's level of playing. Students are also encouraged to bring their school music to lessons for review and also to seek out music that interests them.

Piano:

For my piano students I use the Piano Adventures series of lesson books. At each level they incorporate scales, etudes, music reading music theory, and rhythmic exercises to ensure the student has a solid musical foundation that they can apply to any other instrument" less...
