After graduating I became certified with the Arizona Board of Education and was a band director between two schools in downtown Phoenix before moving to South Miami, Florida in 2012. I still currently perform on clarinet within the community with local groups.
As a teacher my goal is to provide my students with an enriching musical experience, because every student can be a musician regardless of their age or ability. I have experience teaching beginner to advanced studies on clarinet, beginner to intermediate studies on saxophone and music theory, and beginner studies on piano. Regardless of the instrument, I make sure that my students have an in depth understanding of their instrument. I explain all concepts regardless of how advanced in the simplest of terms so that my students can fully comprehend the objectives of every lesson.
