All learners and abilities are celebrated in private lessons. Each session is different and carefully tailored to the needs of each student. I have a keen interest in research in the emerging field of musical neuroscience. My teaching is informed by understanding how the brain works, how we learn new skills, and how techniques can be adapted for all musicians.

Children’s music

Concerts and classes through the greater Columbus area, including Dublin at the Dublin Community Recreation Center, the Columbus Metropolitan Libraries. Hilliard, New Albany, Delaware Arts Castle, Columbus and Franklin County, Delaware County, and Powell.

Freelance performer and teacher

I am a musician living and working in Central Ohio. Like the musicians of times past, I make my living as a teacher, performer, conductor, and collaborator. Every week is different; every day brings new surprises. I teach private lessons, sing and strum the guitar in concerts for preschoolers, direct the North Unitarian Universalist Choir, laugh in music and movement classes, play my flute with ensembles large and small, and collaborate with other musicians on crazy projects. I stay (mostly) sane by raising two incredible children and living with dirt under my fingernails.
