I have been teaching young oboists since 1992 and in the Chicago area since 1996. I love to teach oboists of all ages. The oboe is not a difficult instrument if a student is set up properly at a young age. My students usually study with me for 6 or 7 years. My students often participate in district and state ILMEA. I also teach college oboe lessons and pedagogy at Carthage College.
I am a member of Quintet Attacca and the Chicago Philharmonic and I free-lance in the Chicago area (performances with the Chicago Symphony, Lyric Opera, Joffrey Ballet, Music of the Baroque and the Elgin, Lake Forest, Rockford, Milwaukee and Grant Park Symphonies).
