I have taught basic musicianship for ten years and am available to give lessons in aural training, sight singing, dictation and conducting.
I am a thoroughly competent teacher in all aspects of music, including theory (harmony, counterpoint, thoroughbass), history, and conducting (both choral and instrumental). I teach lessons on all brass instruments (trumpet, trombone, horn) as well as beginning keyboard.
I have been a trumpet player for many years, beginning to teach privately while a sophomore in high school. I currently maintain a light performance schedule, and am available to teach that instrument. I performed junior and senior recitals at Eastern Michigan University, having studied under Carter Eggers, as a music education major before moving on to graduate school.
