About Me

 

I know where you are coming from and can support you where you are going.

I am a music educator with over a decade of experience, licensed in New Hampshire and Massachusetts. I originally created many of these materials for my work in public education and have been using them since then. I can attest to their efficacy.

As a full time public school music teacher, I teach guitar classes, music technology, and adaptive music, and after school modern music ensembles.

I practice what I preach outside of the classroom, whether that means delivering guitars to students in the middle of a pandemic or marching with my students in the Boston Pride Parade. I am also a member of the Committee for Diversity and Inclusion for the Massachusetts Music Educator's Association.
