I am delighted to combine teaching, performing, and recording in my career!  At the Capital University Conservatory of Music, my courses include Flute Lessons; Music Pedagogy; Woodwind Methods;  Flute Literature; and Introduction to Music through the Lives and Music of Bach, Beethoven, and Brahms.  Additionally duties include conducting the Capital University Flute Choir, and coaching Woodwind Quintets and the Flute Quartet.

The Capital University Flute Studio embraces both traditional and contemporary teaching and learning styles.  Flute majors study Taffanel-Gaubert's Daily Exercises, scales in a wide variety of configurations, sight-reading of duets, repertoire from all musical eras, orchestral excerpts, and more.  All students are encouraged to explore playing piccolo, alto flute, and bass flute. We love Chamber Music at Capital, and encourage our students to participate as fully as their schedules allow!

My teaching is deeply indebted to my own flute teachers: William Wurtz, Walter Smith, Maralyn Prestia, Karl (Fritz) Kraber, Walfrid Kujala, and Leone Buyse.  I endeavor to pass on the love and knowledge of music and the flute to my students, as my teachers imbued it in me.

My students are a constant inspiration, and I would like to honor them here by listing their senior recitals: their 'crowning achievements' as flutists reflecting all they have learned during their time at Capital University!  See their programs below these two photos; first, a picture of a flute masterclass in January 2015 with Flute Guest Artist Dejan Gavric.

And next, the Capital University Flute Choir before our 2012 performance at the Central Ohio Flute Association Annual Flute Festival.
