      Music Teacher, Master
      Location: Charlottesville, VA
      Speaks: English
      Instructs: Flute
      Education: MM - Flute Performance, University of Oregon BM - Flute Performance, Lawrence Conservatory
      Performance Experience: Principal flute with Eugene Concert Orchestra, University of Oregon Symphony Orchestra and Wind Ensemble, Lawrence University Symphony and Wind Ensemble. Second Flute/Piccolo with Charlottesville Symphony.
      Teaching Experience: 10+ years of private teaching experience, ranging from beginners to advanced high school students. Courses on flute pedagogy from Lawrence Conservatory and the University of Oregon.
      Teaching Philosophy: The most important job of a music teacher is to get their students to love their instrument. I play because I genuinely love the feeling of overcoming challenges and deepening my knowledge of the flute. I want my students to experience this for themselves as they develop what will hopefully become a life-long relationship with their instrument.
