About Me

My name is Elaine and I joined the Music & Arts team in March of 2014. I have been playing music as long as I can remember, beginning with the piano and cello. When I was 13, I joined the Norwalk Youth Symphony as a French horn player and got to play in many amazing venues with them such as Carnegie Hall, Tanglewood, and concert halls in Vienna, Salzburg, and Prague. In high school I also was the drum major of the Brien McMahon Marching Senators, where I got to perform in the Rose Bowl. I went to the University of Connecticut for French horn performance and played with their orchestra, wind ensemble, and way too many chamber groups to even begin to list here! I also played mallet and auxiliary percussion in their marching band for two years. I worked substituting as a horn player in local orchestras and pits and playing church gigs. I've taught piano, French horn, and trumpet privately.
My specialties are brass instruments and sheet music, which came from working in a music library for three years and graduating from Drexel University with my Masters in Library Science. I mainly play on a Conn 8D but used to also own a vintage Conn 6D. I also have owned Jupiter and Allora trumpets, Yamaha keyboards, and Fender guitars. I love talking about instruments so come on down and I can help you get the perfect one!
