Graduate School Plans
I’m so excited to announce that I’ve accepted the Paul J. Collins Wisconsin Distinguished Graduate Fellowship to study at UW-Madison for my MM with Lindsay Flowers! I can’t wait to begin this fall in a vibrant community with such wonderful people. Thanks to everyone who has supported me in this process, and Go Badgers!
P.S. I am currently accepting new students in Madison into my private studio who would like to begin via Zoom and transition to in-person instruction as early as mid-August.
This summer I will be attending the John Mack Oboe Camp in Little Switzerland, NC and then returning to the MasterWorks Festival in Spartanburg, SC. I look forward to my time studying with renowned teachers in such a beautiful part of the country! Please view the MasterWorks website for more information, including concerts, events, dates, and more.
This summer, I was able to work as an intern at the Austin 1 Bocal Majority Camp with faculty including Martin Schuring, Bill Lewis, and Billy Short, and then I participated in the MasterWorks Festival located in Spartanburg, SC, playing in the Festival Orchestra and studying with Dr. Reid Messich. Both were wonderful opportunities for growth and fun with new colleagues and mentors.
Music is an agreeable harmony for the honor of God and the permissible delights of the soul.J.S. Bach
