About the Instructor

For over more than 20 years I have had many successful students, who have enjoyed playing and studying with me. Teaching is a life-giver for me--I enjoy introducing students to the joys of different musical ideas, concepts, and ways that they can advance on their instrument. Things that I have enjoyed learning and playing over the years that I can pass on to them to explore and enjoy. I hold both a Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree in Music, and have taught as an adjunct on the college level, high school, and privately. On the college level, I have taught clarinet, saxophone, and flute at three colleges, a Woodwind Methods class for five years, developed jazz ensembles, and developed and procured music for woodwind trios and saxophone quartets. Formerly taught as an adjunct at Crown College, North Central University, and College of St. Benedict/St. Johns University. Also, group instruction at Hopkins High school, and private lessons at St. Louis Park High School, and Chaska Community Center. I presently teach out of my home.

I have played professionally in these settings; symphonic, pit orchestra, jazz, and general business entertainment freelance as a woodwinds specialist.
