The clarinet is one of the most beautiful and versatile instruments.  I am excited to share the joy of clarinet playing and music with my students.  In addition to mastering the fundamentals of the clarinet as an instrument, we work together towards a vision of “the bigger picture” – what does it mean to play musically?  How do we engage our audiences and our fellow musicians to create breathtaking performances?   

I have many years of experience teaching all levels and ages, from kids to adults.  While my teaching emphasis is on classical clarinet playing, I am also versed in klezmer and Balkan clarinet styles.  I’m excited to announce that I recently joined the faculty of the Parlando School of the Arts in Boulder, CO!

A bit about me: I am a professional clarinetist and musician.  I studied with clarinet virtuoso David Krakauer at the Bard College Conservatory of Music and have performed as the guest principal clarinetist of the American Symphony Orchestra and as a soloist with Contemporaneous, a New York City-based chamber orchestra.  I am also a composer and songwriter.
