My journey in music has been inspired by remarkable music educators I've had the privilege to learn from. What stood out most about these teachers was their contagious passion for music, which ignited my own enthusiasm for playing. Thus, my foremost goal is to share my love for music with my students.
Passion is the cornerstone of creating great music. Without it, the results can fall short. However, with genuine passion, anyone can deliver a compelling performance.
Additionally, I place a strong emphasis on teaching brass students good technique. Efficient technique makes playing brass instruments a joy, while bad habits can lead to frustrations. My aim is to ensure that students develop a solid foundation in fundamentals alongside their musical pursuits.
I am currently pursuing a bachelor's in tuba performance at McGill university.
I study tuba privately with Sasha Johnson of the National Ballet of Canada Orchestra and previously studied with Jen Stephen of the Kitchener Waterloo Symphony. In addition to my private studies I played principal tuba in the Toronto Symphony Youth Orchestra for the 2019/20 season and played tuba with the Toronto Youth Wind Orchestra from 2018-2020.

I spent a summer volunteering at a summer camp and two seasons teaching skiing to students of all ages, but primarily young children, so I will be comfortable teaching younger students.
