I am originally from the Capital Region and graduated from The College of Saint Rose with a Bachelor of Science in Music Education in 2015. I have been teaching private cello and violin lessons since 2012 to students of all ages, ranging from 4 years old to retirees. I believe everyone can learn music as long as you're having fun! I strive to choose repertoire that interests my students and aligns with their learning goals, whether that is preparing for a music competition or learning their favorite pop song on cello. In fact, I love arranging pop music for string instruments and I've discovered quite a few artists through student suggestions. In addition to teaching music, I love performing in ensembles. I've performed in several local orchestras and assisted a youth orchestra on their tour to Italy in 2014. Aside from music, I love traveling and everything to do with cats. So show me a picture of your pet and we can start learning your favorite song together!

Guitar, Ukulele, Mandolin, Classical Guitar. I aim to help my students develop the skills not only to meet their guitar goals, but also to have a deeper understanding of musicianship in general, all driven by their interests in music.
