I started teaching students privately during my undergraduate work at UNC-Greensboro in 1992 and have continued private instruction and other types of teaching, including low brass sectionals and chamber music coachings, for over 25 years.
Teaching music courses at the university level is an incredibly complex profession that requires passion, patience, and understanding in the development of students into future artist-teachers of their field. I believe it is important that musicians have a fundamental understanding of the craft they are studying in terms of sound, musicianship, and breath control.
I challenge all my students to practice and to study efficiently in hopes of reaching their dreams in any field of their choice.

Why I teach....
I have loved playing tuba since I started in 7th grade; I honestly never thought I would have a successful career as a performer and teacher. I am excited to help you achieve your goals and reach your dreams in the future.
