Flute Studio

In Halifax, Nova Scotia I maintain a flute teaching studio through the Maritime Conservatory of Performing Arts. It is geared towards the artistic goals of each student, whether that be Royal Conservatory exams, music festivals, university entrance auditions, orchestral auditions, celtic and other traditional music forms, learning Baroque flute, playing for sheer enjoyment, or some blend of any of these goals - and, for everyone, experiencing the joy of making music and of expressing ourselves through it. In terms of student instruments, modern, Irish, and Baroque flutes are welcome across genres. I have also served as Head of Woodwinds at the Maritime Conservatory since Sept. 2016.

I created and currently run two Maritime Conservatory student ensembles which each have their own page:
Traditional Music Ensemble ("Trad Ensemble")
Baroque Ensemble

I give workshops, school band clinics, and masterclasses, in classical flute repertoire and traditional music forms from across Europe and North America, in a wide variety of settings, including in schools and festivals.
