How can I help?
WORK WITH ME

My journey began in college when I was a struggling music major. I rushed through fast passages, didn’t get the results I wanted in auditions, and had terrible pitch. Sound familiar?

Learning how to build a phrase, bring out important notes, and how to communicate musically changed my flute playing. It gave me stability when playing fast and better control of my nerves. It had such a profound impact on me that it’s the foundation of my teaching.

Everything I share with you in flute lessons, I do in my own daily practice. I’ve literally practiced what I teach.

I’m passionate—ok, admittedly obsessed— 
with conquering obstacles on the flute.
