Here’s a quick story: my enjoyment of classical music was not an instantaneous thing; a while ago I found it to be merely pedantic. It was not until I started taking private lessons that I discovered the amazing qualities of both the clarinet and classical music as a whole–all due to proper instruction. Since then, it has been a goal of mine to create that spark in students, so they can garner a similar perspective on our historic art form.
I have recently received masters degree in Clarinet Performance at the University of Michigan. There, I performed in many ensembles, such as orchestras, wind bands, and chamber groups.
I have worked with middle school and high school students both in ensembles and individually. The zoen network provides a unique opportunity for me to spread my passion to students across the country, which I am very excited about.
