I am a 2011 graduate from the University of Hawaii at Manoa with a Bachelor of Music in Composition. I have a great interest in video game scoring, but I do very much enjoy composing in a variety of different genres. I also like working on transcription projects.

I have performed in the University of Hawaii (UH) Marching Band, UH Concert and Symphonic Bands, UH Concert Choir and Chamber Singers, and Colla Voce, a UH student run women's choir. I just moved back to Sacramento not too long ago and, now that I finally settled down, I am currently looking for performance opportunities.

My principal instrument is clarinet. I have been playing for 10 years. I studied clarinet with Henry Miyamura while in college. When I first started playing clarinet, I struggled a lot. After getting into college, I learned a lot about certain aspects of playing and, after much practice and guidance, I managed fixed my improper playing habits.

Proper clarinet technique and tone production are popular aspects of playing that musicians struggle with in the beginning and sometimes for several years into their studies. Thankfully, with help and practice, students can learn to play properly.

During clarinet lessons, I will help students through etudes and scales studies, proper posture and breathing, breathing exercises, practice techniques, and solo/ensemble repertoire work. With these studies, students can expect great improvement in their playing.

During music lessons in general, I will use different types of musical examples, hands-on work, and written/aural exercises, that will help students learn what makes music work.

I will take into account the musical background and goals of each student in order to tailor a lesson plan that will help them succeed in every way possible.
