Bio

I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (UWM) in May 2015 with a Master of Music degree in Flute Performance
and in May 2013 I graduated from UW-Milwaukee with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Flute Performance.

I began studying flute in 2001 under several fine teachers, including Teri Forscher, Jeani Foster (associate principal flute of the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra), Caen Thomason-Redus (former assistant professor of flute at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee)...

I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (UWM) in May 2015 with a Master of Music degree in Flute Performance

I began studying flute in 2001 under several fine teachers, including Teri Forscher, Jeani Foster (associate principal flute of the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra), Caen Thomason-Redus (former assistant professor of flute at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee) and Jennifer Clippert (current assistant professor of flute at UW-Milwaukee).

Teaching Experience:
I started teaching flute privately in 2007 and have been teaching students ranging from beginner to advance. I have always enjoyed teaching and watching my students grow through music as I have. Some of my experience includes teaching the flute masterclass at the UW-Milwaukee Honor's Band Festival in November of 2014 where I taught a class of 50 middle school students to help them prepare for their ensemble performances in the Honor's Band Festival, as well as taught them more about the flute in terms of articulation, tone, and technique. In 2012, 2013 and 2014, I was an adjudicator for the UWM UWAY auditions, which included listening to about 30 flute and piccolo students at their auditions, asked them for scales of my choosing, and placed them each in the appropriate chair placement for each ensemble. From 2013-2015 I was the Graduate Teaching Assistant of Flute at UWM, which included teaching the woodwind doubling majors private flute lessons once a week, preparing those students for their recitals, juries and future endeavors, teaching the flute fundamentals course which was a group class of music education majors who needed to learn flute in order to teach it to other students as part of their career, and I helped the flute professor with any copies, scans, and masterclasses. I have helped my students get accepted into programs such as MYSO, UWAY, and WSMA.

* I am a an alum of MYSO (Milwaukee Youth Symphony Orchestra) and have won numerous awards in WSMA during high school.*

Performance Experience:
During my undergrad and graduate years, I was a proud member of UWM’s instrumental ensembles including
Symphony Band (2010-2011), Wind Ensemble (2011-2015) and Symphony Orchestra (2011-2015).
In March 2012, I toured New York City with the UWM Symphony Orchestra where we gave a
performance at Carnegie Hall. In February 2012, I toured with the UWM Wind Ensemble to Central
Michigan University where we participated in CBDNA (Collegiate Band Directors National Association.) In
March of 2013, I toured with the UWM Wind Ensemble to North Carolina where I partook in the
NCBDNA (National Conference Band Directors National Association) in Greensboro, North Carolina.

I have won numerous awards in music, including the UWM Bands Area Concerto Competition with a piccolo
duet in March 2013. I perform with a number of groups such as the Concord Chamber Orchestra,
East Side Chamber Players, Tabula Nova Ensemble and am a founding member of the woodwind quintet, “Five’s
Company,” which has been in existence since February of 2013.

Teaching Goal:

When I teach my students, my goal is for them to learn flute properly by giving each student the instruction that is right for them. I use many different pedagogical method books, I teach scales, etudes and solos. I prepare students for auditions, school band/orchestra preparation, and festivals and competitions. I require my students to bring a pencil, tuner, metronome, their techniques, etude and solo, a binder and a notebook. I use the notebook to log assignments. I also teach basic music theory in my lessons as needed, so the student can learn how the music works more depth. Most importantly, I want my students to ENJOY playing flute and to have FUN with it! Music should be enjoyable and not stressful. I want my students to succeed and work toward their goals.

1. I learned from the best.
2. I have played in several ensembles throughout my life, including being principal flute of the UWM Symphony Orchestra from 2013-2015. My extensive performing experience helps my students excel toward their goals of being in ensembles.
3. Being in the top ensembles in MYSO better helps me prepare my students for the MYSO auditions, as well as UWAY and WSMA.
