After twenty years of teaching, touring and other music related endeavors it’s time to consolidate everything under one umbrella, Washashore Music.
I began teaching music in 2005 at Score Music, founded West Bend Music in 2008 and taught there until the Spring of 2020. Because of the pandemic, I began teaching remotely and it made sense to open my own music school (also called Washashore Music) and focus entirely on my methodology of teaching and my own students. I specialize in Fiddle (Mark O’Connor Fiddle Method) individual and ensemble, Guitar, Ukulele, Piano, and Songwriting. I also teach several adult students, whether they are beginning, picking it up again after years of collecting dust, or just want to advance their skillset. Over 90% of my students are female and many of them study with me through out their school years. I have developed a deep connection with these girls, as I try to empower them to be strong, successful women, and often times our lessons go beyond music. I am actively looking for a physical studio so we can re-connect again in person once it is safe to.
