Performance Experience: I have performed with the Marching Captains for four years, one of which we traveled to Chicago to march and perform in the Chicago Thanksgiving Day Parade. I have also performed with the CNU Wind Ensemble for four years, where I had the opportunity to travel to Greece and Cyprus and play with the University of Cyprus community band. In terms of solo performances, I have performed two full length solo recitals as a part of degree requirements.
Teaching Experience: 3+ years of teaching experience, worked as a camp counselor as well as being a student leader
Teaching Philosophy: My teaching philosophy includes three key components: communication, comfort, and consistency. Communication is extremely important in both day to day conversation, and while teaching. It is important to know that both myself and the student are on the same page. Comfort is another part of this; I hope to insure that students always feel comfortable during lessons. Lastly, consistency: for both myself and the student, it is important to remain consist in terms of expectations and pacing.
