This is my 19th year teaching middle and high school band at Frankfort-Schuyler! I also teach the high school jazz band. My musical career began in 4th grade at Clinton Elementary School. I spent many hours practicing clarinet and participating in the wind ensemble and orchestra there, before I continued my passion for music as a music education major at the Crane School of Music in Potsdam, NY. I graduated from Potsdam in 2001 and have been teaching at Frankfort-Schuyler ever since. My favorite instrument is clarinet, which I have been playing for 31 years now. Outside of teaching music in school, I have been involved in many other musical activities such as playing in pit orchestras, community bands and giving private lessons.
