 Offering In-Person and Virtual Instruction


I teach trumpet, (French) horn, trombone, baritone, and tuba, and I thoroughly enjoy working with students of all ages and skill levels. From beginners to advanced players, I'm here to guide and support you on your musical journey.


My teaching style is flexible, and I strive to cater to each student's specific needs and goals. Whether you want to learn to read music, prepare for solo and ensemble performances, strengthen your tone, or work on any specific aspect, I'm here to help you achieve your aspirations.


I believe in creating a comfortable and progressive learning environment, where students can improve at their own pace. To keep things interesting and engaging, I use a variety of music and materials that align with your interests and strengths.


As for my musical background, I started playing the horn during my elementary school years and have been honing my skills ever since. Presently, I perform with the Fox Valley Horn Choir, Appleton City Band, and other ensembles in the area. My passion for music led me to earn a degree in music education from UW Stevens Point, and I also teach band in the Appleton Area School District.
