I earned my Bachelor of Music degree in French Horn Performance from the Peabody Institute of the Johns Hopkins University.
Teaching Philosophy

I believe that hard work is far more important than talent. Talent may make it easier to pick things up, but it's hard work and persistence that will actually make you successful. I don't ask or expect my students to do everything right the first time--or the second--or the third--but I do expect them to be willing to take direction, practice, and not give up.


I attended the Peabody Institute of the Johns Hopkins University on a General Merit scholarship. I earned my Bachelor of Music degree in the studio of renowned teacher and player Denise Tryon. Before that, I studied with players in the Pittsburgh Symphony. Throughout high school and college, I have coached younger horn players. I am also a certified Israeli Combat Systems instructor, and teach classes for both children and adults.
