"I love empowering others to break through their own self-limitations and make new discoveries. For me, success is hearing a singer tell me they’ve learned something new, whether they are 25 or 85. Seeing an audience moved to laughter or tears is also incredibly rewarding — knowing that someone’s life has been touched by the moment you shared together."

BEHIND THE MUSIC
I believe that music is a perfect blend of art and science - where emotion and communication meet reason and technique. There is great joy in making and sharing music. I have been working in the field of music education since 1998 with students of all ages.
I have a Bachelor of Music degree specializing in music education and trumpet, a single subject teaching credential, and a Master of Music degree specializing in conducting.
