Services

Teaching is a passion of mine. I love watching my students achieve their goals and discovering. My goal as a teacher is to create a positive atmosphere that will promote growth. Below are some of the services I offer to help you on your journey to improve your bassoon playing.

LESSONS

Currently all in-person lessons are suspended until further notice due to the COVID-19 pandemic. If you would like to receive lessons, please contact me about setting up online lessons.

ONLINE LESSONS

I am currently accepting online students! I have had experience teaching online for a number of years and have access to all popular platforms. Individual or group lessons are available! Interested in setting one up? Contact me to get started!

REED CONSULTATION

What makes a good reed? Where do I scrape? How do I get the most out of my reeds?

Learning to make good reeds can drastically improve all aspects of playing the bassoon. Reedmaking has been a passion of mine ever since I started it, and I would love to share my knowledge with you. I offer all forms of instruction from making a blank from a tube to learning how I scrape a reed. Interested? Contact me to set up a consultation!

CHAMBER MUSIC COACHINGS

Want to take your chamber group to the next level? I am available to coach your group! I would love to bring my years of experience playing in chamber ensembles to help out! Contact me to set up a coaching!

MASTERCLASSES AND CLINICS

In addition to providing private instruction, I am available for public masterclasses and clinics. I have experience with all ages and skill levels. Popular topics that I have covered include:

  • Starting out on the bassoon
  • Introducing extended techniques
  • Getting started with electroacoustic music
