Artist statement and teaching philosophy
“I like to promote a relaxed and comfortable setting in which to learn music. While it is important to be purposeful in our pursuit and education of music, the experience of the student comes first. I want to help you learn more about how to play the trumpet and at the same time I want you to enjoy it. I have a great deal of experience working with youth but would also love to teach older students as well.”
