    About MeContact Me
    Introduction
    Experienced coach / teacher enjoys teaching both young students and adults. Emphasis on good tone production and technique. Students encouraged to help in choosing repertoire, whether classical solos or orchestral repertoire, ensemble music, show tunes or other favorite music. As long as it makes you want to practice, it is a good piece

    My Teaching Background
    I spent many years as a pro freelancer in the Denver area, as well as playing in several orchestras. My main gig is now in music management, but I still love to stay in touch with my "flute roots." I hold 2 music degrees from the University of Denver. I also attended many masteclasses as both performer and auditor. I've had the pleasure of working under Lois Schafer (Boston Symphony Orchestra, Walfrid Kujala (Chicago Symphony), and Murray Panitz (Philadelphia Orchestra).

    My Teaching Philosophy
    “Practice only on the days you eat”

    Shinichi Suzuki

    I would not go quite that far, but the maestro was saying much in a few words. The more thoughtful practice one devotes to one's instrument, the more quickly one improves and the more one enjoys playing! And practice is not just playing, it is listening, both to oneself and to any music you enjoy.
