for practice and bassoon content
I teach bassoon at Oberlin Conservatory and at the Round Top Music festival. Previously I taught at DePaul University and freelanced in Chicago, subbing with the Chicago Symphony, Milwaukee Symphony, Lyric Opera, and Grant Park Orchestra. My teachers include George Sakakeeny, Bill Buchman, and Richard Beene. In my spare time I'm interested in disc golf, fitness, and finance.
