My Teaching Philosophy

I firmly believe in tailoring a course of study for each student’s individual needs. Everyone learns differently, but for all students, I strive to help them develop great fundamentals that will ultimately help them express themselves more freely through music. For a young oboist, any amount of time spent practicing thoughtfully goes a long way for developing the small muscles in your embouchure, and the stronger and more fine-tuned these muscles are, the more fun can be had playing the oboe and making music!
