TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I taught orchestra for 11 years before deciding to stay home for a while when my son was born. While teaching full time, I worked with string orchestras from beginners to high school seniors. I have also taught privately, coached chamber ensembles, and I enjoy short-term teaching as a clinician. I currently serve on the Board of Directors for the Bloomington Symphony Orchestra, where I also am principal viola and librarian.
