I grew up in the Madison area and have been playing cello for 15 years.

I have been teaching for the past 8 years to students ranging from the ages of 7 to 45. I enjoy working with students of any age! Many of my students play in the Wisconsin Youth Symphony Orchestras and chamber programs.

I am certified in Every Child Can! and Suzuki Cello Book 1 under the instruction of Dr. Tanya Carey. I believe in building self-esteem, kindness, and respect through my lessons. I also prioritize body and mental awareness during musical study. I believe in helping my students become the best musician they can by finding their abilities and adapting to their learning needs with an open environment.

In addition to my Suzuki Training, I have a BM in cello performance from the University of Wisconsin—Madison under the instruction of Professor Uri Vardi.

I am in an outreach trio to show students and the community the positive influence music has throughout history and all over the world.
