As a Belmont Day alumna, I fondly remember... my Belmont Day years, especially our orchestra rehearsals, Mrs. Davis our fearless conductor, and all of my dear string friends. In fact, I am still in touch with many of them to this day! It is because of the many nurturing opportunities Belmont Day provided me, that I grew into a person that discovered very early just how important the arts and, in particular, music are to me! I truly believe my teaching philosophy has its deepest roots in my formidable years spent as a student at Belmont Day.
Three ways to describe my teaching/rehearsal style are... I place the emphasis on demonstration and modeling, I encourage student participation and risk taking, and of course a fast paced and fun environment.
One fun fact about me is... I am an active hiker, having completed the 4000’ in New Hampshire many times, section hiked the Appalachian Trial (Georgia to Maine), and climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro in 2012 and 2014.
