I have been teaching private trumpet lessons since 2009. I am currently pursuing a Master of Music at Northwestern University, where I also received a Bachelor of Music in 2013. Since 2012 I have been an active performer, playing with the Civic Orchestra of Chicago (until 2014), the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra, and as a highly-regarded freelance classical musician in the Central Florida region. Many of my middle and high school students have been selected for all-district and all-state bands.

I welcome students of all ages and ability levels. I have experience teaching middle school through college trumpet students.

I have won prizes at many competitions, including International Trumpet Guild Competitions, the National Trumpet Competition, and the Fischoff Chamber Music Compeitition. I strive to make music fun and enjoyable to my students while challenging them to be the best they can be.

Basketball

I have played basketball for as long as I can remember. I played on middle school and high school teams and play pick-up basketball on a weekly basis to this day. I have continued to play in adult leagues. I have worked with a few younger players to help train them with one-on-one and two-on-one sessions. My experience includes basketball skills training and basketball specific workouts.
Chess,

Chess

I have been playing chess since I was 7 years old and love the game. I play chess on an almost daily basis. I enjoy reading and learning about stress strategies and enjoy sharing ideas with others. I am no grand master, but I have experience teaching other subjects and a good understanding of the game of chess.
Golf

Golf

I have been playing golf since I was 8 years old; my dad taught me the game when we lived near a golf course. I played on school teams in middle school and high school as well as junior golf tournaments in high school during the summer. I have a 10 handicap. I can drive the ball over 300 yards (my longest is 358). I enjoy helping people learn new skills and improve.
