Want to take your skills to the next level? Perhaps start an instrument that you've always wanted to play? Or maybe write/compose music but don't know where to start? Well I'm here to help YOU.
I have a master's degree in music education from Syracuse University and experience teaching general music and band in the Bronx. My main focus has been classical saxophone for 15 years but I have also played in both jazz groups and rock bands. With so many paths to musical mastery, I'm here to clear the dust and create the best possible instruction based on YOUR needs and goals. The rewards of playing music are plentiful, but mainly it provides a deep sense of curiosity and fulfillment that is rarely found elsewhere.

The instruments I play:

-Saxophone -Trombone -Oboe
-Clarinet -Percussion/Drum Kit -Bassoon
-Flute -Guitar
-Trumpet -Piano
