Credentials/Background

I strive to help my students progress in the music they enjoy. While I keep them grounded in fundamentals and build a base of technique, my aim helps to identify specific elements of the music they enjoy and how to incorporate those elements into their own musical creation. As a teacher, I encourage my students to ask questions and I hope to give them the tools they need to have the ability to answer those questions. I graduated from Lawrence University Conservatory of Music in 2010, where I studied with Steven Jordheim and Fred Sturm, among others, gaining a strong background in pedagogy, from classical to jazz. In 2012, I graduated from the University of Oregon with a Masters in Jazz Studies. While at UO, I served as a graduate teaching fellow, instructing undergraduate courses in jazz. I've held a private studio of beginning to advanced saxophone and clarinet students for eight years.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
