My studio is located just north of Clifton and is within easy proximity to students located in the Springfield, Xenia, Yellow Springs, Cedarville, Fairborn, and Jamestown areas.

I have instructed privately for over fifteen years and know that all students, no matter what their age, thrive when their efforts are met with respect, encouragement, and gentle patience. I provide a learning environment that combines elements of musical play to reinforce the skills and musicianship being instructed, so that multiple learning strategies can be incorporated into the instructional process.

I hold a Bachelor of Music Education from the NSW State Conservatorium of Music in Sydney, Australia, a Master of Music in Choral Conducting from California State University, Long Beach, CA, and a Ph.D. in Musicology from the University of Kentucky, Lexington, KY.

In addition to teaching, I have managed and acted in musical theatre productions that specialize in historical performance practice, educational entertainment, costume design, and performance research. I also instruct workshops on dance, costume construction, and historical musical performance techniques.
