As a younger brother at the age of five, I began studying the piano because my older sister did. After my foundation in music strengthened I fell in love with the trumpet. At first, each note took time to develop and I enjoyed the challenge. The trumpet allowed me to travel all over the Southeast later in life and even to China with a 1940's Radio Show. I enjoyed many top-level bands the kindled my love and passion for good music. I want to share that kindling with my students in a nurturing and guiding situation, just like my teachers gave me. I used to go to lessons and become so motivated and inspired that I thought I could change the world. I always knew that I would want to give back exactly that. As my performance opportunities grew into venues like Churchill ...

Every student is unique. Because every student is unique, I find it important as an educator to be knowledgeable in the teachings and fundamentals of an eclectic mixture of pedagogues. Current students of mine are regularly exposed to exercises and musical concepts that were developed by renowned musicians and educators such as Arnold Jacobs, Vincent Chicowitz, Armando Ghitalla, Carmine Caruso, and many more. With the utilization of various methods, it creates an engaging and fun environment for students to learn and grow as musicians. The two most important method books for any trumpeter are the H.L. Clarke: Technical Studies for the Cornet and the Jean Baptiste Arban: Complete Conservatory Method for Trumpet. I supplement these books, depending on the level and goals of the student, with various other etude, excerpt, and method books. In addition, students will be exposed regularly to ear training and music theory concepts to develop their skills as a well-rounded musician.

I have been teaching brass players privately and in the ensemble setting since 2000 and prize the opportunity to build my students' all-around musical confidence.
