    About MeContact Me
    I have been playing flute for 13 years and recently graduated with a music education degree from Pacific Lutheran University. There, I studied flute with Dr. Jennifer Rhyne and played in a variety of ensembles. Not only am I a flutist, but I am a teacher. I am currently teaching elementary general music and am also certified to teach middle school and high school band. I love helping students discover their inner musician by giving them a welcoming, fun, and educational experience.

    My Teaching Background
    Pacific Lutheran University prepared me to teach students in every age group. I have taken many classes on teaching music fundamentals as well as flute pedagogy classes to help me better understand and teach my instrument. I work with young children on a daily basis, but have also taught beginning band and assisted with high school marching bands and summer music camps. At PLU, I was fortunate enough to play in the following ensembles; PLU Wind Ensemble, Concert Band, Symphony Orchestra, Flute Choir and small chamber groups. Since I graduated in 2012, I have continued to play with the Concert Band and have accompanied choirs and played for weddings.

    My Teaching Philosophy
    My music philosophy is based on building a positive experience. In order to be a flute player, you have to enjoy it. In my lessons I will provide fundamental exercises that will transfer to solo repertoire and school band music. I will also encourage all students to participate in solo and ensemble competitions. Not only that, but students will get a chance to create chamber music by playing duets with me during their lesson. I believe playing chamber music is key to teaching quality musicianship. My flute students will learn music fundamentals and musicianship in a warm, supportive and encouraging environment.
