I became a teacher because I love music and want to share the power of that experience with others. For me, nothing could be better than getting to work with music all day long. Some of the most influential and important people in my life have been teachers that I had the opportunity to work with. If I can make that kind of a difference for a student, I will really have achieved something of great meaning and value.

Bullis is a great school that is constantly moving forward. We are always evolving, growing and improving. This makes for a dynamic and exciting learning community. We strive to provide meaningful experiences for students in every area: academics, arts and athletics. In doing so, we hope that every student finds opportunities to shine.

It is exciting and rewarding to see and hear a young student perform his or her first improvised solo in front of an audience or even just to try an improvisation in rehearsal for the first time. Successful risk-taking, with the proper foundation of skills behind it, is central to personal and musical growth. When a student first advances musical ideas of his or her very own, a seed is planted that, with attention and opportunity, can continue to develop and evolve in so many directions.
