"I love the flute. I have been playing for over 20 years. I have enjoyed giving lessons to friends and family. I taught a flute workshop at Young Disciple Camp, in Eastern Washington, and loved watching the kids excel and grow in their playing. And now I have opened my studio for flute students.

I am committed to helping my students build their skills on the correct foundation. Having gone back myself, to fix bad habits from poor teaching-- my goal is to start students off with the very best framework. I want to help establish proper breathing, great intonation, and fabulous tone, as well as great technical skills-- in a way that the students can understand and apply to their playing in a successful and confident way-- from the very beginning!

In the last five years I have had the opportunity to take lessons from some of the best teachers, and I have discovered a whole new field of flute! I want to take my love of teaching and combine it with the beauty of flute.

I love seeing my students faces light up when they have that "ah ha" moment. I love when a student comes to lessons thoroughly prepared and it shows in their playing. I also embrace the more challenging situations, when a student struggles, and the regular toolbox of situations is not working. It gives me an opportunity to dig deeper and find the best solution. And last of all I love to learn and will always be stretching myself and finding new things to share."
