About Me

I am one of the newest members of the Itasca Music & Arts family! I am a recent graduate of Elmhurst College where I received my Bachelor of Arts in Music Education. The clarinet is my primary instrument, and I've been playing for twelve years. My strongest secondary instrument is French Horn, which I’ve been playing for five years. In my four years at Elmhurst College, I was involved in a number of musical groups; these included: Elmhurst College Philharmonic Orchestra, multiple chamber ensembles, Elmhurst College Wind Ensemble, and Elmhurst College Varsity band.

I love trying out new equipment and finding what works best for me and others. I believe that everyone has their unique style and brand that works best for them personally. If you're curious about what I play on it is listed under the "Gear tab."

 

-If you need any help my specialties are french horn, clarinet, woowind accessories or brass accessories, do not hesitate to message or call us at the Itasca store. I'd be more than happy to offer you my expert opinion on anything you might need.
