I hold an Honours BMus from Wilfrid Laurier University.
I continue to play the flute in various settings ranging from solo performances to larger ensembles such as wind bands, woodwind quintet and chamber groups. I am an enthusiastic teacher who enjoys working with students with various goals. I also continue to develop my skill through taking occasional consultation lessons and attending masterclasses.
I have had several students who have passed auditions for university and I am proud that one of my former students is now a bandmaster in the British army. In addition, I have successfully prepared my students for RCM examinations at various levels.
As a teacher, I have found that each student comes as an individual with different strengths. This means I am constantly adapting to fit the students learning style. I believe that each student presents a different challenge and that I can continue to improve as a teacher by trying to serve the needs of my students.
