10 years of piano lessons, a bachelor of music education, masters of music education, and 16 years of teaching piano lessons. Many of my student's participate in student achievement testing and receive high ratings.
I have played trumpet since Jr. High (starting on French horn). My experiences include: jazz band, pep band, and marching band. I have also taught beginning-intermediate trumpet players for the past 16 years.
As an education major and honors scholarship recipient I studied and played French horn through college. Since graduating I have continued to play and/or perform in the Grand Rapids area on a regular basis. I have also been teaching French horn lessons for the past 16 years; many of my student's receive top ratings at local and state solo & ensemble competitions.
