Professional title

Flute Teaching Specialist


I love to teach. Previously an instructor at The University of Minnesota, Duluth and Northland College, Ashland, I now offer lessons in the Suzuki style to flutists as young as 4 years old and welcome "taller" students of all abilities and ages to my flute studios in the Twin Ports and my home in Ashland, WI. I have a fun, eclectic teaching style and a knack for quickly assessing and teaching the skills necessary to help musicians reach their next level of musical development.

I received my Bachelor of Music degree in Performance and Music Therapy from the University of the Pacific after studies at the University of California, Los Angeles. My Masters degree in Performance was earned at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities, where I studied with Julia Bogorad- Kogan. I am a member of the Duluth Superior Symphony Orchestra, a chamber music recitalist, and have previously performed with 6AroundOne, a world music band fluent in Latin and Celtic styles. You will also find me coaching adult musicians at the a nnual Woodland Chamber Music Workshop in Tofte as well as performing with the Gichigami Trio, Duluth, and the Red Cedar Symphony Orchestra, Rice Lake. I have just finished recording Rick Sowash's "Christmas Ceremony" with cellist Josh Aerie to be released this month.
