I believe that the most essential element in the pursuit of musical study is that the student believes in what they do.
I strive to goal-set with all of my students not only to understand what brought them to lessons in the first place but to measure how little steps can feel like a big leap when we overcome obstacles in the pursuit of achieving goals. Play flute in band but really want to play jazz? Is Klezmer clarinet your passion? I believe it is fundamental to grasp what makes a student happy and interested to allow for engaging lessons and positive results.
I have attended the following schools, earning the following degrees:
- York University - Master of Arts
- University of Toronto - Bachelor of Music
Notable teachers include: clarinet with Miles Jaques, David Bourque, Steve Pierre and Peter Stoll, flute with Peg Albrecht, Nina Martini-Dorey and Sara Hahn, oboe with Wendy Bornstein, Monica Fosnaugh and David Sussman, bassoon with Nadina Mackie Jackson.
I was always eager to learn everything I could musical instruments in my childhood and had great support of teachers within the public schools system in Ontario to do this. They let me sign out any and all of the woodwind instruments and it was a personal pursuit to learn them. Now, I am a proficient woodwind doubler with extensive experience on each of the woodwinds, who plays in pit orchestras for musicals across Canada, and feel very passionately about the role of multi-disciplinarian's in the arts. I was a Banff Artist in Residence in 2018 and got to collaborate and record with emerging Canadian singer/songwriters in fusion, folk, dark folk and jazz styles. I was a competitive dancer for 20 years and believe that music and movement compliment each other. As much as possible I find ways to incorporate movement in my lessons.
