As an artist, I relish the close relationships with my students and teachers. Passing on the joy and knowledge that I have received from my teachers is a life long process and goal. I delight in the opportunity to meet new students and hope to keep in contact with old ones.
I have been a disciple of both the american and french schools of flute performance, and my principal influences have been Michel Debost, Kathleen Chastain, Elizabeth Ostling and Linda Toote; although I have never worked with a musician I didn’t learn something from.
As a teacher my primary focus is to customize my teaching to fit the goals of each individual student I meet whether it be an adult amateur, a young child or an aspiring professional.
