At my lessons, I use the experience and knowledge that I have acquired from over 10 years of playing and studying music to teach students how to take their playing to the next level and reach their goals.
I attended Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts in Dallas, TX, and am now one semester shy from graduating from the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music, a conservatory in New York City.
I find the best way to learn is in a fun, stress-free environment where the instructor pays close attention to the needs of their students. I believe in cultivating an appreciation for jazz and other styles of music, paying close attention to detail, and building a strong foundation through focused practice.
I was working within the Music Administration department where one of my jobs was to have music prepared for rehearsals and performances for the Lincoln Center Jazz Band with Wyntyn Marsalis. During this time I was also fortunate enough to be around guest artist including one of my favorite saxophonist and musicians ever, Wayne Shorter.
