I have been playing oboe for nearly 15 years. I hold a Bachelor of Music degree in Music Performance from Southern Illinois University Carbondale, and a Master of Music degree in Oboe Performance from the Chicago College of Performing Arts. I am a freelance oboist in the Chicagoland area, having performed with ensembles such as New Chicago Chamber Orchestra, Amadeus Consort, Cambridge Concentus, and Callipygian Players, among others. I have been teaching since 2012. My students have won principal spots in school ensembles, acceptance into honors ensembles, youth orchestra, summer music programs, and acceptance into university music programs.
