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!
