Profession evaluation patients and understanding for all students who call me for help. My knowledge and understanding of Brass instruments is second to none and i take pride in teaching students in a competent and complete musical manner. I have been teaching for 32 years and have developed a complete method for progress and confidence from each student regardless of the current level one performs at.
I am joyful to be a part of some truly spectacular results from my students! My lesson plans are designed for all ability levels ranging from complete beginner to professional performer.

I Have been teaching for 10 + years.Part of my daily focus is on relaxed breathing and generating a big beautiful tone for every note played. Long tones are something that I include in my daily regiment. Lots of dexterity exercises,range building, as well as endurance. Another aspect of my daily regiment is improvisation. focusing on major/minor/ whole tone/diminished scales/ II-Vs in all keys and playing changes! Lastly RESTING as MUCH as you PRACTICE is very IMPORTANT!
