I am 23 years old, and I am a 2LT in the Virginia Army National Guard. In my spare time, I enjoy reading especially Stephen King, playing fetch with my dog, and training for my next half marathon. I have my initial teaching license in Massachusetts, and I am in the process of earning my Virginia teaching license. My main instrument is the bassoon, but I am also very comfortable with the flute and tuba.
I do not offer studio lessons.

I attended the University of Massachusetts Amherst from the fall of 2007 until I graduated in the spring of 2011. While there, I earned my B.A. in Music Education with a GPA of 3.76. I was involved in many ensembles including the Wind Ensemble, Wind Quintets, and Double Reed Ensembles. During my time at UMass, I also earned a minor in Military Leadership and, upon graduation, received my commission into the Army as a 2LT.
As a teacher, I am firm with my students about expectations, but I know the fun and joy that music provides, and I want to give my students that experience. I want my students to learn how to read, understand, and interpret music in order to express themselves more completely. Music provides students a chance to learn with their whole body, and I utilize that characteristic as much as possible.
