Hello! I've been playing the saxophone, clarinet, and flute for 13 years now, playing professionally in the Los Angeles scene for the past four years. I have teaching experience at all ages/levels. My background is in jazz and classical music, while a lot of the work I do in LA is more in the pop/rock setting- so we can go over any style you'd like. I've played venues such as Umbria Jazz Festival, the Vienne Jazz Festival, the Monterey Jazz Festival, Yoshi’s Oakland, the SFJAZZ Center, The Troubadour, The Roxy, Whisky a Go-Go.
