Background & Experience
I have been an instructor of flute at the grade school through college level since 1981 in the western suburbs of Chicago and currently maintain studios in Forest Park and in Villa Park. In addition to my teaching, I own and run Tri-L-Co Music, a company which engages musical ensembles for concerts, clinics and receptions. Along with my performance commitments I am responsible for marketing, publicity, programming, contracting, and accounting all experiences I can share with your students. I am a free-lance musician whose greatest joy in life is making music, and hope to impart my joy to my students.
