About this pro

How does your service stand out?

I am a young professional who makes a big effort to find how to keep my students interested, as well as challenge them. I have students playing in various groups, as well as one young oboist playing principle oboe in the SOGO junior group. Since composition is my first love I use my ability to write music in my lesson plans, writing warm-ups and exercises for students. I have also worked with a few students on writing music for themselves. One of my oboe students recently performed a piece for unaccompanied oboe, an original composition he wrote. I recently joined ASCAP and have a piece being published by Broadbent & Dunn Publishers. This is the beginning step toward doing what I love, even as I continue to share it with my students! Not everyone can say that they have studied with a published serious composer.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

The creativity! Trying new things with students and seeing them come to their own conclusions.

Q&A

How did you get started doing this type of work?
I have been a musician all of my life and to teach it only makes sense. I worked for a while as a youth symphony conductor, which was a blast, but I find individual instruction to be more effective. Also, as for my writing, I have been doing that my entire life as well but only recently decided to pursue publishing.
What types of customers have you worked with?
I teach out of a studio in Olympia and I will be offering online lessons as well. These are in the fields of oboe, flute, clarinet, saxophone (soprano, alto, tenor), and music composition/song writing. I have a few students in each field currently but also with room to grow. Please do not hesitate to call or email!
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
A tenor saxophone student of mine has just made the All State Band here in WA. CONGRATULATIONS! A flute student of mine, 5th grade, has written (with my help) and performed her second original piece for Flute and accompaniment. An Oboe student is principle oboe in the SOGO Junior Orchestra An Oboe student of mine graduated and received a large scholarship to attend Boston Conservatory studying the oboe. Online lessons are also available for people out of my area!
