Music Teacher, Professional
Location: Rockville, MD
Instructs: Clarinet, Saxophone
Education: University of Maryland - Bachelors of Music (Clarinet) - Expected Graduation Date: May 2022
Performance Experience: I have extensive Concert Band, Orchestra, Jazz Band, and Solo performance experience including performances with UMD's Wind Orchestra, Symphony Orchestra, Wind Ensemble, and University Jazz Band. I also have extensive solo recital experience both in the University of Maryland and out of it. I've played at UMD's Dekelboum and Gildenhorn recital halls, as well as the Music Center at Strathmore.
Teaching Experience: I am a private teacher for the New Horizons Clarinet Choir at the University of Maryland and have been for 2+ years.
Teaching Philosophy: I believe that teaching the instrument is simply not enough as a music teacher. I think that as a music teacher, my job is first and foremost to teach the student how to play music, and an instrument is simply an avenue to that destination. In teaching music to the student, I also hope to be able to instill a love of music and a passion for learning within all of my students.
