About Me

As far back as I can remember I have always enjoyed performing music. I can remember during my elementary school years how I would play drums during church service. Some days I would sneak in my dad's closet to play his saxophone. I began learning how to play saxophone in middle school and by the time I was in high school I was learning piano, performing jazz, and composing music.
I went on to get a Bachelor of Music at the University of North Texas. I have been performing professionally for over 18 years. I also have taught band for 11 years in Dallas ISD. I enjoy teaching and mentoring other up and coming musicians. It's a joy to see another world open up to them through music.
Through my warm and positive personality and experience as a certified music teacher and music performer, I understand how to meet the social and educational needs of each music student. I am well versed at solving problems and helping students thrive and reach their full potential. I think that I do this best by personalizing the instruction experience for each unique situation. I love to encourage students and help them discover the music in them.

Saxophone

About Me

Jazz and blues have been an integral part of my life since I was a child. I began playing music when I was five years old, starting with the violin. I have played many instruments, but the saxophone has become my passion. I have been playing saxophone for 18 years, performing professionally both in the Atlanta and Seattle areas.

One of the greatest joys in my musical journey has been to share my musical insights with students. I strive to find each students' creativity and help them cultivate that. I believe that every student has the ability to create beautiful music regardless of experience. I tailor my lessons to each individual student to assist them in reaching their goals- whether that is to perform classical, jazz, blues, Brazilian, etc., to become first chair, to prepare for college and scholarship auditions, or simply to play just for fun.

I studied jazz performance at Agnes Scott College where I received a music scholarship. I also hold a BA in psychology from the University of Washington.

*** Lesson Details ***
One of my main philosophies is that performing music well consists of 2% talent and 97% hard work and practice.

I will guide students in learning smart and efficient practicing techniques that will ensure improvement.

Students can expect that they will learn how to play with great tone and technical ability.

I go at the pace of the student. If a student has specific goals, a college audition for example, then I will push that student harder than a student who is just beginning or is learning to play for fun.

When a student is ready I will teach them music theory and improvisational skills, as well as performance and soloing etiquette.

I believe the best way to learn music is in a comfortable, fun and encouraging environment, and I implement these beliefs in all of my lessons.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I will have metronome and tuners on hand, practice materials, music stands, and piano. Students should bring their instruments, reeds, and any practice materials they have been working on.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will have metronome and tuners on hand, as well as practice materials. Students should have at least one stand for themselves.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in jazz and improvisation. Brazilian jazz, blues, funk, straight ahead jazz, beebop, cool jazz, etc. I have also been classically trained. I focus on technique and achieving the desired tone and sound from your instrument.

About Me

I am a recent alumni of Sonoma State University, where I earned both a Bachelors of Arts in Jazz Saxophone Studies, as well as a Bachelors of Arts in Environmental Studies. I have seven years experience studying classical piano, as well as eleven years experience playing saxophone. I teach lessons to students of all ages, and love to convey my passion for music to others! I believe in the importance of all aspects of musicianship, including theory, performance, technique, ear training, history, and listening practice. To be a great musician, one must learn from the greats, and studying them is absolutely crucial to artistic growth!

Noted individuals I have performed with include Dr. Jason Robinson, Gilbert Castellanos, Joshua White, Charles Mcpherson, Daniel Jackson, Ryder Davidson, Ian Tordella, Anthony Davis, Danny Weller, Rob Thorsen, Ellen Weller, The Amalgamated Ska, Mitch Thomas, Kasey Knudsen, and many others.

*** Lesson Details ***
Given that no two students are the same, my lessons incorporate a personalized approach, geared to the goals of each individual student!

*** Specialties ***
Jazz, Reggae, Ska, and Funk! I consider myself very well-versed on jazz music history, and believe that in order to play jazz music, one must learn from the jazz lineage! I make sure to give all my students listening assignments so that they may find themselves more acquainted with this wonderful American art form.
