Welcome to the studio!

“A teacher is one who makes himself progressively unnecessary.” - Thomas Carruthers


I am passionate about music, the flute, and sharing my experience with others through teaching and performing. My greatest desire is to create knowledgeable music lovers, while along the way helping students to be mindful of crucial life skills such as discipline, self-assessment, confidence, and responsibility. By regularly attending local flute events, the national convention, reading articles, and discussion with other teachers I am always working to find new and improved ways of communicating with my students. Every student is different, so my approach differs to meet the varying goals and expectations of my students. Whether the student is simply an eager beginner, a college bound music major, or somewhere in-between I always expect my students to do their absolute best and to never forget why they play the flute... because they love to!
