About Me

Hi! 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 the cello. When I was in 8th grade, 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 Uconn for college 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 (The Pride of Connecticut University of Connecticut Marching Band) for two years. I worked substituting as a horn player in local orchestras and playing church gigs. I graduated with my degree in horn performance and continued to play with four groups there in the semester following my graduation while teaching piano and French horn 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. In addition, I own a Jupiter trumpet, a Yamaha keyboard, and a guitar. Working at Music & Arts has only expanded my knowledge and I love helping people pick out instruments!
