“Creating music with others is a gift that brings us closer together and helps forge relationships in and out of the classroom. It is my goal to work collaboratively in an environment where we can make mistakes, overcome challenges, and grow from the experience of both.”

Year Joined Franklin



I taught piano at a K-12 private school for the past decade and saw my studio grow from 12 students to 39. As a bassoonist, I have played in numerous groups dedicated to the art of improvisation and non-traditional sonic experimentation. I have also composed and recorded music for dancers, as well as creating numerous sacred piano arrangements for church pianists.
