With over thirty years of teaching experience and two degrees in flute performance, I am a highly-qualified instructor. My students learn solid flute technique and basic music theory while having fun learning to play the music they like, whether it’s classical repertoire, popular favorites or contemporary extended technique. Students also get the chance to meet and perform with other flutists, through events that I host in the community, such as student recitals and flute caroling during the holiday season. My students have been accepted to competitive high school and university level music programs including San Francisco’s School of the Arts and San Francisco State University as well as the Oakland Youth Orchestra. I’ve coached the flute sections of the San Jose Youth Symphony and the Young People’s Symphony Orchestra.

I teach at the Community Music Center‘s Capp Street and Richmond District locations.

Flute Caroling


Every December all of my students are invited to perform holiday carols together at the Noe Valley Farmers Market.
