Welcome to the Field Instrumental Music Home Page!!


I am thrilled to be the Director of Band and Orchestras at Field School. We are happy to offer a variety of Instrumental options for your student:

  • Bands
  • Strings
  • Chamber Orchestra
  • Wind Ensemble
  • Jazz Band

I have been teaching at Field School for 25 of my 30 years of teaching band & orchestra. Before teaching, I worked in an instrument repair shop repairing and overhauling woodwind instruments. I am proud to be part of a strong music department!!

Besides playing mainly sax and flute, I also sing in the Twin Cities Womens’ Choir. I enjoy being outdoors – camping & walking, reading, traveling and chocolate. I have two grown sons, a daughter-in-law and a husband who is also a musician.

You will find information on this site for concerts, private lesson teachers, practice charts, registration forms and anything else you may want or need to know.
