Welcome to my studio! I graduated from Harvard University with a Bachelor's Degree, with a concentration in music. I am a National Board Certified teacher, and am certified in Music and Performing Arts, Special Education, Gifted Education, Elementary Education, Reading Bilingual Education and English as a Second Language. I began my musical career by studying recorder at age 6, progressing to flute, piccolo and saxophone. I have performed with the Harvard Radcliffe Gilbert and Sullivan Performers, the University of Santa Cruz Latin American Music Ensemble, the Rio Rancho Symphonic Band. In addition to teaching flute and recorder, I teach at Shining Stars Preschool in Rio Rancho, where I serve over 450 children as the Music Teacher and the Bilingual/ELD Coordinator. I am Suzuki trained in Books 1 and 2 in Flute, and Book 1 in Recorder. I also have completed levels 1 and 2 of the Orff Schulwerk Certification and Level 1 of Kodaly.
My experience and education combine to enable me to provide a personalized approach for each student. I would love to talk to you about any questions you might have.
