I recently graduated from the University of Northern Colorado with a degree in performance! I know how important a solid foundation is for the continued growth of young students. This is a lesson I learned in contrast seeing as I began late, in high school, and was self taught.
My passion and drive took me to college but the instructors there showed me how important the fundamentals were that I had been lacking. By the end of my time at the University of Northern Colorado I had played principal in the Orchestra and Wind Ensemble for a few years and was the section leader for the clarinet section in marching band as well.
If I could offer any advice it would be to start lessons as early as possible! I spent most of my time in college breaking bad habits from being self taught.
Nowadays, I continue to perform with a Klezmer group around Northern Colorado and Wyoming and I also compose for a variety of ensembles. At Music & Arts, I like to be apart of the education of the next generation of musicians and to help and encourage them in any way I can!
