I am a recent graduate of Castleton University Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Music in Music Education. I recently moved to California from the East Coast where I grew up. I am a flute and woodwind specialist with experience in brass, strings, and vocal music. I love to perform as well as teach what I am passionate about. I strive to create a classroom environment where students are free to be creative, express themselves, and grow in their social-emotional learning. My teaching practice revolves around creating and performing music as individuals as well as collaborating through ensembles such as band and chorus. I am excited to grow the music program at CWC Mar Vista because I believe that music is a universal language and it is integral to the development of global citizens.
