About Me

Coming Soon

You can hear me perform with the following groups:

Lessons and Tutoring

Bassoon Lessons

I have over fifteen years of experience teaching private lessons to bassoonists of all skill levels. Whether you have a sixth-grader looking to get started off on the right track, a high-school senior intending to major in music in college, or are an adult hoping to dust off an old instrument from the closet; I am happy to help you get the most out of music and the bassoon.

My studio rate is $40/hr. (Lessons given outside the studio may also include travel expenses.) The weekly lesson durations I find most productive for students are as follows: 30 minutes for middle-school and most junior-high students, 45 minutes for advanced junior high and most high-school students, and 60 minutes for adults and high-school students intending to major in music in college. I also offer professional, handmade bassoon reeds for $16 each.

Current students will find the following links helpful:

If you have any questions or would like to set up lessons, please send me a message at moc.noossabartnocbus@obobr.

Contrabassoon Lessons

For adults (including college students) with access to a contrabassoon: $50/hr.

Music Theory Tutoring

I have taught music theory (including ear training, orchestration, and music technology) at the college level and offer tutoring for both high school- and college-level music theory courses. My rates are $25/hr for college and $20/hr for high school.

Finale® Assistance

I offer lessons and assistance with Finale® music notation software for $25/hr.
