"My core mission as a teacher is to help individuals become creative and skilled musicians, develop positive identities, build self-confidence, learn approaches to musician’s health, and find their voice through the genres of violin, viola, and fiddle.
As a performing artist, I collaborate and record with talented individuals and bands in rock, jazz, alternative, and singer-songwriter styles, and perform with many of Montana's symphonies."

“I believe the study of music offers a platform that benefits our existence and participation in the world around us. The skills involved in learning the piano include: physical and mental coordination, spatial awareness, analytical and critical thinking, listening, attention to detail, emotional expression and release, self-control, and an appreciation for patience and goal achievement. I strive to teach my students with these important disciplines in mind so they can learn and be creative in the world around them.”
