About this pro

I am a composer, performer, and instructor. In this field I take my music very seriously and love to share it with students of all ages. As a classically trained composer I often write pieces for my students, both to perform as well as exercises for mastering their instrument. I thoroughly enjoy playing, writing, and talking about music and its history. It is especially enjoyable to be able to engage with curious kids who desire knowing more about it, and who are motivated to perfect their musical ability!

    Q & A

    • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
      I charge per lesson and bill monthly. My prices for private lessons are based on the value the student will get from having lessons which will carry through their entire lives. Things like confidence, patience, follow through, and determination as well as goal setting, are all elements practiced when learning to play an instrument. I have discounts for group lessons (students must sign up in groups of 2-4) I have discounts for prepayment of a quarter or 6 months at a time. I have a very flexible policy regarding missed lessons and make up lessons
    • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
      Initially we set up a meeting, talk about the way the studio and lessons work. Over our first few lessons we get to know each other and I try to assess how the new student responds to my instruction. I have always developed a good relationship with my students.
    • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
      Principal oboe through college, Tacoma Youth Symphony, conductor of CAYSA, studied music composition at PLU.
