About this pro
I teach lessons to students of all ability levels and ages. I can help, whether you have a child just starting out on saxophone in the school band, a teenager who wants to learn guitar, or you're an adult who wants to enrich your life by learning a new instrument or dusting off that trombone that's been in your closet for years. Professionally, I spend most of my time as a band, guitar, and general music teacher for Minneapolis Public Schools. I hold a BA in Instrumental Music Education from the University of Minnesota, Morris and have been teaching private lessons since 2005. Working on some tough audition music and need a teacher for a month? I can help! Looking for a long-term guide to help you develop as a musician? I'm here for you! Anything in between? Count me in! I enjoy working one-on-one with musicians. Lessons are driven by goals set, not only by myself, but by the student. Short-term, seeing a concept click or hard work on a song pay off is incredibly rewarding. The real high point of my career, though, is building relationships with students and their families and seeing their progress over time. I'm driven to see my students succeed and have fun along the way.

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I charge $23 per half-hour lesson, billed at the beginning of each month. If a student refers a friend, both the student and the friend will receive one month of lessons at half-price.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?When a student reaches out, I correspond via email or phone to gather a little preliminary information. After that, I invite the student for a free half-hour lesson to see if we're a good fit for each other. We work together to establish goals and develop a plan to work toward those goals. Adults are always welcome to sit in on children's lessons, but it seems to be most beneficial for the first lesson or two.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I am a member of the Minnesota Band Directors Association and the National Association for Music Educators. I log about 40-50 hours of professional development clock hours per year.
