I am a graduate of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with a Bachelor's and Master's in Instrumental Music Education. I will begin my 6th year at Sunset Ridge in fall 2020, and I am excited for an AMAZING year!! I love teaching band, jazz and music, and 4th-8th grade is by far my favorite age-group to work with. Outside of school I play trumpet in the Northshore Concert Band and sub on cornet in the Chicago Brass Band. I am looking forward to a fun and exciting musical year!

Announcements for All Grades

  • Do you feel behind in class? Bored and not challenged? Consider taking Private Lessons! We have an amazing group of master teachers who mostly work out of New Trier, and are incredible musicians on their (your!) instrument.

  • I cannot wait to see everyone this fall! It is going to be a wonderful, memorable year!

  • Keep playing at home, especially music you enjoy. It doesn’t have to be from the book!! In fact, I found it most fun to figure out songs from the radio on my trumpet. Some websites offer a free portion of songs you’d like, but you can also do it by ear or with a friend. Travel to these sites with a parent: ...and I’m sure many more (plus YouTube)
