With 30+ years private teaching experience I bring a love and passion for music and firmly believe music belongs in our lives! I teach all levels, but especially enjoy working with beginners and intermediate players, as well as jazz saxophone players who want to learn to play the clarinet or already double and want to strengthen their skills.
During the school year I am actively invloved in the community. I run morning masterclasses with the clarinet section at Glebe Collegiate Institute and I am the clarinet teacher and mentor with OrKidstra.
Further teaching experience includes teaching Undergraduate Clarinet Majors as a Graduate Assistant at Western Michigan University (WMU), Jazz Saxophone Majors at WMU who doubled on clarinet, Sessional Clarinet Instructor at the University of Notre Dame and Benton Harbour University, Practice Instructor at Interlochen Centre for the Arts Summer Program, and Masterclass Instructor working primarily with clarinet sections in various school band programs.
I love teaching music, and look forward to teaching clarinet lessons in Ottawa!
