Artist statement and teaching philosophy
"My teaching style is adapted to the student's needs and I am particularly good at helping students discover their ideal sound. I am a firm believer in daily maintenance work and that the goal of the musician is not to impress but to express. As a teacher, I encourage my students to listen to as much music as possible and to play the music that they care about. I look forward to sharing my love for the trombone and welcome students of all ages and abilities."
