New Opportunities at UMKC

I am excited to announce that I have begun the Doctorate of Musical Arts program at Conservatory of Music at University of Missouri-Kansas City. In August, I moved to Kansas City for the 2011-2012 school year to pursue this program.

I was also named an Adjunct Instructor of Oboe, responsible for teaching Oboe Techniques course, and assisting with the UMKC oboe studio.


Back from a Website Break…

I’m back to blogging, after a long hiatus from updating this website. While I’ve been playing many concerts and teaching a lot of lessons in the past year, I had many other things that took priority over updating this site.

Now, I’m ready to update the site with new performances, teaching information and advice. Please bear with me as I update many links and add more content.


Great Lakes Woodwind Quintet

On January 9, the Great Lakes Woodwind Quintet conducted a Chamber Music Seminar at North Farmington High School.

The focus of the chamber music seminar was to help high school musicians with preparing chamber music. In addition to highlighting good music choices for the skill level of a small ensemble, the GLWQ facilitated discussions and demonstrated how to rehearse efficiently, how to communicate effectively, and how to negotiate respectfully. Several excellent NFHS ensembles performed and were coached by GLWQ members.


Resources for Oboists & Bassoonists

Specialty Stores for the Oboist

These retailers specialize in providing music and supplies for doublereed instrumentalists. Owned and operated by oboists or bassoonists, these shops keep an outstanding supply of specialty items and hard-to-find music that local stores can’t offer. When considering purchasing oboe supplies, make sure to check out these stores that cater to our fellow oboists!

Several of my favorite retailers of supplies are listed in the following article: Note-able Detroit are Music Resources
