The summer before 9th grade, my mom suggested I give some private lessons to beginners as a creative alternative to picking up a paper route. Little did I know the impact that first job would have—17 years later and I'm still teaching!
In addition to giving private lessons, I’ve found myself teaching in classrooms (kindergarten through college), visiting schools as a guest artist, directing fiddle groups, coaching a high school rock orchestra, running music camps, presenting at conferences, and leading workshops around the country for students and educators. These varied educational activities and their challenges eventually led me to study further at Harvard University, where I obtained a master's degree focused on the arts in education.
If you’re looking for a guest teacher/clinician/performer for your studio, music program, or summer camp—or some other out-of-the-box teaching opportunity I haven’t thought of—please drop me a line!
