Educational Background


Bachelor of Arts in K-12 Instrumental Music Education from Luther College


Educational Experience


+ years with Aquinas Catholic Schools
+ years total teaching experience


I grew up in Black River Falls, WI and went to college at Luther College in Decorah, IA. After student teaching and some long-term subbing, I moved to La Crosse nine years ago to start a private violin studio at Leithold Music and to continue playing in the La Crosse Symphony, a group I have been playing violin with for almost 15 years. I continue to keep a small private studio in addition to teaching orchestra at Blessed Sacrament and St. Pat's.


My lessons and rehearsals are dedicated to teaching music and technique on their instruments, but also teamwork and discipline. As individuals, students are expected to be responsible, prepared and well practiced. If every student does this, our ensembles succeed and we can have a lot of fun in the process.
