<p>Dedicated to my private students ranging in age from 8 to 85 years old, they include flute students aspiring to be professional performers and adult or young players enthusiastically loving every new song they learn. I equally enjoy working with reed players honking out their first notes, piano players discovering new patterns, and elementary students excited to practice pieces for their school band. </p>
<p>As a Music and Movement Specialist in schools, I enjoy the sweet energy of young students, and how interested they are in exploring, imagining, and learning; at the upper elementary and middle school level, I appreciate students eagerness to be challenged and to work collaboratively. </p>
<p>I am an active flutist, performing in chamber music recitals, and sing with choruses in the area. I am on the board of the Northern California chapter of the American Orff Schulwerk Association, as their journal's editor. </p>
<p>I enjoy the outdoors of the Bay Area, picnicking and hiking with my family.</p>
