I’m a professional flutist with over 15 years of teaching and playing. I perform with the flute & guitar ensemble, The Cypress Duo. I live in Wilmington, North Carolina.
I have played in over a dozen symphony orchestras including the Northwest Florida Symphony Orchestra, Panama City POPS orchestra (FL), the Oak Ridge Symphony Orchestra (TN) and most recently the Wilmington Symphony and Opera Wilmington. I created and help manage an online newsletter dedicated to flute and music pedagogy, The Flute Examiner.
I focus on nurturing each of my student’s unique capabilities by creating individualized teaching strategies. My ultimate goal to create life-long musicians.
I have held two teaching assistantships with both Dr. Shelley Binder (Univ. of TN) and Eva Amsler (Florida State University). I earned my Doctorate in Music from Florida State University in the fall of 2016.
Early Childhood Education I teach K-5 general music and am a Kodaly-inspired teacher. I love teaching children foundational skills in music!
