Thank you for visiting
I am currently accepting oboe students of all ages and abilities in my Stockport, NY private studio (serving Columbia County, Dutchess County, Greene County, Albany region, Ulster County, Hudson Valley, NY). Contact me for private lessons (oboe or reed making) or performance & recording opportunities on oboe, or oboe d'amore.
As a child, I was drawn to the organic sound of the oboe as it soared through the woodland campus of Usdan Center for the Creative and Performing Arts. It was the sweet sound of lengendary oboist, Lois Wann playing oboe for her student. I was proud to be her last oboe student at The Juilliard School when she retired.
After receiving my BM at The Juilliard School, I received my MM at the Yale School of Music with Ronald Roseman. In addition to studying with Lois Wann, I have studied privately and in masterclasses with John Ferillo, Elaine Douvas, John Mack, Mary Watt and Bert Lucarelli.
